An Encounter With ‘Unfinished Narrative’
An Art Exhibition by Korean Contemporary Artists of MMCA Residency
What are the chances that the histories of two countries, as geographically distant as they can be, are as akin to each other as the modern histories of Korea and India, both having been ravaged by colonialism and partition? Stories of evolved traditions, innocent deaths, political uprisings, broken homes and Diaspora construct both our narratives, the journey of our people. Five eminent young artists from MMCA- National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea in collaboration with Korean Cultural Centre, New Delhi present to us these journeys, our – Unfinished Narratives
It is MMCA residency’s fifth overseas exhibition, and it’s first in Asia. Korea had travelled through a turbulent tunnel of modernization during the twentieth century; passing through various forms of colonial rule, warfare, partitioning and Cold War, as well as rapid economic growth. The exhibition has captured the confusion, passion, tragedy and hope that coexisted within the experiences of the last century as well as its consequences in the daily and internal lives of individuals in our contemporary time. As India also had to struggle through similar experiences of colonial rule, division, and Diaspora during the twentieth century, “We believe that this exhibition will touch upon themes that may be common to both countries,” says Ms. Yoo-mi Kim, the curator/manager of MMCA.
This exhibition sheds light on ‘modernization’ in which five Korean artists (Na Hyun, Ryubiho, Lee Soyung, Che Onejoon and Ha Taebum), having been selected out of a pool of 600 artists in MMCA each make use of diverse media like photography, videos, installations and sculpture. The opening saw a talk between the artists, the curator of MMCA Yoo-mi Kim and art critic Meera Menezes, who was the moderator throughout the session. They discussed in detail how each artist perceived modernity and how they portrayed their perceptions in a non-linear way. As they shared anecdotes about their lives and experiences of living in various parts of the world, researching the various tropes of modernity, we learnt the history of each of their strokes. Each of the five artists used different materials and perspectives to approach the modern events and history that remain as symptoms and traces, while offering a critical diagnosis of the past and present.
The opening ceremony was graced by the presence of The Ambassador of the Republic of Korea Mr. Lee Joon-gyu who believed, “We bring young talented artists to India, giving us an opportunity to understand the transition of Korea from an underdeveloped to a developed nation that it is today. Korea and India have kept their relationship and cultural-exchange for thousands of years and as in recent years it took a break, such initiatives by Korean Cultural Centre, New Delhi help to bring us together.”
Korean Cultural Centre, India has been playing an imperative role in spreading awareness about Korean culture in India and promoting stronger cultural ties between both the countries. Exhibitions are a regular feature in KCC. The other participating organization is MMCA Residency which is situated in Gwacheon, South Korea. It supports numerous artisans throughout Korea and helps them to develop and display their art.
