Make Your Movements: Korean Contemporary Objects, Korean Cultural Centre

Korean Cultural Centre (UK)
Until September 17
An exhibition, curated to showcase a new phase in Korean craft, is now being held at London’s Korean Cultural Centre.
Kyungtaek Roh - Shell Lounge Chair
Exhibition: ‘Make Your Movements:Korean Contemporary Objects, A New Approach’ is exploring the theory of movement in crafts. Nineteen Korean craftsmen, designers and creatives have been chosen by curator Kyoungrin Park, to showcase a combination of traditional, contemporary and innovative Korean crafts this summer.

From the dynamic steel furniture designs of Bomi Park to Deok Ho Kim’s simplistic ceramic creations, as well as Yong Joo Kim’s arresting handmade contemporary VELCRO® pieces; it is hoped that with so many diverse exhibits on display, visitors will gain an overview of Korean crafts that reflects the current changes in Korean culture, as they immerse themselves in this exotic but not unfamiliar world.
