My old family friend came to attend her brother’s wedding in Seoul~* So we decided to have a little reunion and chat over tea at Cafe Madang, located in the basement level of the newly renovated Maison Hermes Dosan Park . 🙂
The place wasn’t too crowded, and we loved that there’s a new exhibition in place. I also loved their tea selection although it’s quite simple and basic; but their tea tray could def improve. 🙂
In overall, Cafe Madang is always a pleasant place to visit.
New exhibition at Atelier Hermes – #AtelierHermes, Seoul. 🙂
“O philoi, oudeis philos”
“오 친구들이여, 친구는 없구나”
About the exhibition: (quoted from Hermes website)
The title of the exhibition—O philoi, oudeis philos—is from a quote attributed to Aristotle by tradition. The exhibition on works of six actively working Korean artists in their late 20s to 30s—Kim Minae, Kim Yunha, Kim Heecheon, Park Kiljong, Baek Kyungho and Yoon Hyangro—is in a collaborative structure:
the six artists bring in the past of Atelier Hermès—the exhibitions held, artists invited, or artworks realized at Atelier Hermès—to the present as if they would call their “friends”, let the trajectory of Atelier Hermès’s past confront with each of their present, and then reflect this again into a “friend” to come—each other’s work to come (or, each other’s work which is not yet realized).
Atelier Hermès’ past decade is touched upon in a prospective manner to encounter the upcoming time instead of a retrospective manner, at this attractive junction of the coexistence of possibilities and impossibilities.
