Translated Vases

We dodged heavy showers and thunderstorms today and made our way to the Saatchi gallery where a new exhibition, Korean Eye 2012, had recently opened. Gallery 1 had a set of beautiful porcelain sculptures by Yeesookyung who pieces together discarded traditional Korean ceramic items. The resulting patchwork of pattern and painted imagery is so pretty. The work is apparently a play on the Korean word “Geum” which can mean either ‘gold’ or ‘split’, as the artist uses gold coloured material to repair and reconnect her broken ceramic objects.

There were 2 girls in traditional Korean dress slowly wandering through the gallery; their colour and movement created a unique atmosphere. You will see these girls reappear as we have more to show you…
