I went to the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea yesterday, aiming to see a photography exhibition (Out of focus, which looked fab, and will reopen October 2nd). Well, as it happened, the exhibit ended a few days ago and was replaced by something totally different: a large survey of new Korean art.
So I spent my afternoon, amazed, wandering around the twelve rooms of the exhibition. There’s a lot of different influences to be seen, and all sorts of works: some are photographs, others monumental installations, there are paintings and even mould soap. But everything is dreamy and beautiful, and definitely worth a look.
Korean Eye 2012, until 23th of September
The Saatchi Gallery (Victoria or Sloane Square Underground)
Duke of York’s HQ
The gallery is open 7 days a week, 10 am to 6 pm and last but not least, the entrance is Free of charge. I would advise you to buy the small exhibition leaflet, which worth a pound, as there isn’t any information about the works displayed in the rooms.
