Korean Eye at the Saatchi Gallery

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.

Translated Vase by Korean artist Yeesookyung
She is using discarded porcelain fragments to create new sculptures, putting them together with gold.

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.

The Nora Collection by artist Cho Duck Hyun
Drawings on old photographs, his work is “about memomry and what we forget, and the construction of history as layers of narrative”.

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.
