Last weekend J and I went to see Yeondoo Jung's Handmade Memories at the Tina Kim Gallery in Chelsea. The handmade aspect and the Korean origin piqued my interest in going to this show.
The work explores the minds of people who lived through the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910 – 1945) and the Korean War (1950 – 1953) and is a continuation of the artists investigation of the 'subjective instability of memory as well as the tenuous authenticity of mechanically-produced images'.
If you're interested in going, you better hurry. The show ends this Satuday (March 28th).
