New Delhi, 12th May 2015; An exhibition of art works titled ‘Secret Garden’ by Korean Artist Ahn Hyejo is being organized at the Korean Cultural Centre, Lajpat Nagar. Director, Korean Cultural Centre, India Mr. Kim Kum Pyoung along with the artist Ahn Hyejo and children from Blue Bells School inaugurated the exhibition. Secret Garden will be on display at the exhibition gallery till 5th June 2015.
“Secret Garden” is an exhibition showcasing a garden located in the Changduk Palace of Joseon Dynasty which is well known in Seoul. The exhibition showcases the Characteristics of Korean Traditional Garden Culture. In this garden the artificial and natural beauties are harmonized with revealing relaxed, comfortable and Koreans’ esthetic emotions. Special motive of “Secret Garden” is Korean traditional mask ‘Tal’ reflecting Koreans’ sorrows and Korean traditional percussion quartet “Samulnori”.
Talking about the exhibition, Ahn Hyejo said, “I am living in India for 5 years. Many people have shown much interest regarding Korean culture and Korean life. So, it triggered me to design graphic stories about Korean culture. I was so lucky because the Korean Cultural Centre offered me a wonderful exhibition room to display design art works reflecting Korean culture. Hope this exhibition would make you curious about Korean culture.”
I am extremely happy that Korean Designer Ahn Hyejo is exhibiting “Secret Garden” exhibition. Special motives of ‘Secret Garden’ are Korean traditional mask ‘Tal’ reflecting Koreans sorrows and Korean traditional percussion quartet ‘Samulnori’ says Kim Kum Pyoung.
Ahn Hyejo is showcasing tangible (intangible) Korean traditional inheritance, which are reinterpreted by the ‘Design’. The art works regarding India National Flower “Lotus” motives also are displayed and this is quite meaningful in the view of the relationship between Korea and India. Besides these Ahn Hyejo is showcasing the various experiences extending the scope of Design and impressions with connecting ceramics. These art works are expressed as like implicating mysterious land behind “Secret Garden”. Hope to have the valuable chance to rediscover the Korean beauty with the exhibit, said Mr. Pyoung.
