A Journey Home
Monday to Saturday
10:00 - 17:30
In her first UK solo show, Eunmi Kim explores what it means to be Korean, what traditional Korean art is, and why people admire its broad outlines, randomised spontaneity, asymmetry and intuitive finishing. Kim’s journey considers the impression that JMW Turner’s paintings, the Joseon Dynasty and the Korean Moon Jar, her landscape gardener father, and her upbringing on the beautiful Jeju Island have made on her work. Using the simple, earthy and unconstrained style of traditional Korean pottery Kim creates contemporary work fit for modern life.
