Korean Passion Meets India is a contemporary art exhibition. Group SEOMI from Korea staged the exhibition at the Korean Cultural Centre, Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi, in partnership with the Korean Cultural Centre, India.

New Delhi: The Korean Cultural Center’s director, Kim KumPyoun, greeted all of the artists from Korea and India. A total of 67 art works were presented, with 57 created by Korean artists and the remaining 10 by Indian artists.

The exhibition, co-curated by Jeong Heon-ki and B. Ajay Sharma, aims to merge Korean and Indian artistic viewpoints through new media art, photography, painting, installation, and performance. It is an attempt to unite the two countries’ modern art by mediating ‘difference’ and employing’synthesis’ as a method.

The goal of this artist exchange exhibition was to bring together modern artists from Korea and India in order to foster mutual understanding and rapport. It provided an opportunity for artists from both countries to share ideas, learn from one another, and create artistic friendship.

Such exchange programs not only showcase different art forms but also provide opportunities to learn about the art forms of other countries. It contributes to the strengthening of cultural relations. We welcome Indian artists to exhibit their work in Korea.

 The exhibition’s concept was inspired by the historical ties between Korea and India.  Color, story line, and theme all have varied moods to express in their creative form.

The striking arts were created using a variety of styles and approaches. Oil on canvas, Korean paper traditional painting, stone color, textile painting, arcylic, digital, mix medium, plaster painting, and many other kinds were on display. Alok Guniyal, an Indian artist, displayed his master piece from the ‘Band Wala theme painting. Bin Hyun Kyung, a Korean artist, showed his work on ‘Speak of Flowers,’ while Kim Young Bo displayed Old House. Lee Soon Hee created amazing work with Reincarnation. Autumn Sunshine was displayed by Son JinSook.

Indian artists taking part in the exhibition are also important. The exhibition explores memory and ecology through the work of Paribartana Mohanty, and it raises questions about identity, representation, and the politics of class difference through the work of Birender Kumar Yadav, time and space through the work of B. Ajay Sharma, and migration and displacement through the work of Harpreep Singh, who aims to develop a performative interrogation of physical activities using his own body as a medium.

This exhibition featured works by notable contemporary artists from Korea and India. We hope to have a better knowledge of the “synthesis” of “difference” in a modern era that exists at different times with different civilizations through their works.”
