Lee Sang Hyun Opening
The exhibition “Broken Blossom” by South Korean artist Lee Sang Hyun was a break through cultural initiative and the first of its kind in Sydney. M Contemporary was delighted to host Lee Sang Hyun’s first solo exhibition in Australia. The event was curated by art consultant and specialist Georgie Bruce and was officiated by the New South Wales Consul General, Mr Whie Jin Lee.
The exhibition explores an insight into the representation of both North and South Korea through images, symbols and concepts of a society, who have endured extreme cultural, social and economic change. The works are digitally montaged and infused with vivid, bright pop colours depicting historical scenes with the stereotypical clichés of a highly technical, hybridized contemporary Korean society.
Lee’s presence in the first week of the exhibition allowed for the audience to gain a better insight into his works, which was followed by curator and artists talks.
