Visitors were introduced to Korean artists who presented during the opening and shared with the audiences their beautiful art pieces. Artist Kim Yunkyung created a bronze and stainless steel sculpture, titled ‘We Are Not Two’ expressing how different cultural elements harmoniously coexist in today’s Korean society, and how the Koreans smartly unify their bodies and minds. Her second work, Moving Flow (Breathing House), is a stainless steel sculpture, resembling the form of a tornado, foreshadows an upcoming, enormous change brought by the collision of traditionalism and modernity.

Yang Younghoe is another Korean artist who presented her art pieces that are filled with philosophical meanings. Her red hearted-shape sculpture ‘Love’ made from Kohler faucets represents the power of Korea, where love is the driving force behind it. On the other hand, her ‘Universe’ sculpture is based on a traditional “hemispherical dome” concept: square means land and negativity while circle means sky and positivity. This sculpture then becomes universal since two shapes are united as one.
