2018 Sulwha Cultural Exhibition <FORTUNE LAND — Gold Leaf> presents modern interpretation of the beauty created by the ancestors, with the theme of ‘gold leaf,’ the Korean traditional decorative technique that imprints lucky omen by tracing letters or patterns with thin gold leaf on fabrics.
This year’s exhibition will feature the art works by 13 contemporary artists, who are involved in a range of areas such as space, graphic, objet, fashion, cartoon, media, sound, etc., including Kim Deok-hwan, intangible cultural property No. 119. The artists have created the works being inspired by the traditional gold leaf art. They have reinterpreted aesthetic sense of the traditional gold leaf art in different ways for their works to emit the beautiful harmony of tradition and modernity.
In particular, <Time Is Gold Is Time> by Soundance, Seo Dong-joo and Lee Hyun-tae provides audience with varied experience both physically and emotionally by combining music of Eastern sentiment with a popular amusement ride, carousel that is imprinted with many different gold-leaf patterns.
Moreover, the exhibition hall decorated as an oriental fantasy theme park will present gold leaf tattoo trial, fortune cookies, and art products, providing audience with entertainment, food, and something to treasure.
