Juree Kim creates new sculpture for Korea exhibition
KOREA. Gateway to a rich past
From 16 October, the Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics will present a wide-ranging exhibition on Korea. Historic masterpieces will be accompanied by high-profile works by contemporary South Korean artists. One of these is a new work by Juree Kim (1980). Work by this South Korean artist has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert in London, where it is now part of the V&A collection. Until 10 October, Juree Kim is attending a residency with ceramists Paulien Ploeger and Her Comis in St. Jacobiparochie, Friesland, where she will make a sculpture from clay. This ‘model’ of a typical Korean house will be placed in a basin of water. During the exhibition, the water will erode the clay, causing the work to slowly decay. This process symbolises the passing of time and traditions in Korean society. KOREA. Gateway to a rich past can be seen in the Princessehof in Leeuwarden from 16 October 2021 to 22 August 2022.
