Publisher Tate Gallery Liverpool
Desctiption Working with Nature was the first major exhibition of contemporary Korean art to be held in Britain. It allowed us to consider some of the differences between a West European and an East Asian approach to making art. Although to Western eyes much of the work would be seen to relate visually to modernist abstract painting (such as that in the Myth-making), it in fact has deeper roots in the beliefs and traditions of Korean culture.

The six artists had been selected because their work continues a Korean tradition of working with nature. The artists see their work, like themselves, as being part of nature, sharing its dynamics, and its textures. In Korean thought, nature is not something separate or an unattainable ideal. It is the governing principle.?

Chung Chang-Sup, Yun Hyong-Keun, Kim Tschang-Yeul, Park Seo-Bo, Lee U-Fan, Lee Kang-So participated in the exhibition.
