The Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong and Stella A&C proudly present a unique exhibition presenting Korean beautiful crafts and famous meals.
In the Korean culture, sharing meals together is sharing feelings with loved ones and bringing happiness to them.
In this unique exhibition, we will concentrate on a modern Korean meal time. In the modern Korean culture, meal time focuses on not only what we eat but also how we eat and feel.
This exhibition has two parts: two separated films and installation.
Film # 1
For the first film, ceramist Shim Bogeun interpreted the modern version of traditional pot. Meanwhile, video artist Cho Byunghee focuses on potteries and pots, not as containers of food but as beautiful objects that can hold things and liquids.
Film # 2
The second film shows the process to making Korean pot dish. “Chodang Oksusu Sot-bap” used ultra sweet corn that is harvested only in summer and it is cooked in a traditional brass pot. By presenting this dish, we wanted to present the freshness of summer season and the warmth that is contained in Korean dish.
Ceramist Shim Bogeun’s works and ceramist Park Sung-keuk’s works are installed. Shim Bogeun is inspired by flowers, so his works resemble elegant, feminine, and smooth curves of flowers. On the other hand, Park Sungkeuk’s works show the unique texture of the soil, although they are delicate and elaborate.
