Venue: Korean Cultural Centre UK, Ground Floor, Grand Buildings, 1-3 Strand, London, WC2N 5EJ (entrance in Northumberland Avenue)
The UK Korean Artists Association invite you to a varied evening of visual and performing arts on 16 October at the Korean Cultural Centre.
The Korean Artists Association was formed twelve years ago to represent UK-based Korean artists, and counts among its membership dancers, painters, sculptors, musicians and other creative artists. Their evening at the KCC in June 2008 was a great success, and now they return with a slightly different mix of talent. As before, yours truly will be your "host" for the evening.
Sunnee Park will perform a reinterpretation of traditional shamanistic dance, while Ji-eun Jung will play her own composition for Kayageum, People of the Sea, inspired by pictures taken by her father, the renowned photographer Jung-hoi Jung. The photographs will be projected onto the wall of the KCC’s multipurpose space during Ji-eun’s performance.
The Association is also delighted to welcome a special guest performer, the talented singer songwriter Younee, who is in London to perform at the Pizza Express Jazz Club and other venues. Younee will perform numbers from her new album, released this month.
The performances also include solo daegeum music from Dong-yoon Hwang, Classical and Korean folk songs from He Mi Lee, and poetry from Hye Kyung Park.
Some of the KAA’s visual and creative artists will also briefly introduce their work: Bada Song (sculptor), Sunju Park (glass artist), Kitty Junim McLaughlin (painter), Youngshin Kim (bookbinder) and Soon-yul Kang (textile artist).
The performances start promptly at 7pm on 16 October at the Korean Cultural Centre. Drinks and Canapes included. All free.
