Barakat London, 《Weather: Meekyoung Shin》

03 Oct 2019 - 22 Nov 2019


Barakat London presents 《Weather: Meekyoung Shin》 with never before exhibited ceramic works by the international artist Meekyoung Shin. The exhibition will be staged at the Barakat Gallery, an established ancient art gallery with a presence around the world, including Korea and London. The gallery has an increasingly forward-looking, critically engaged approach. This exhibition, driven by the young team in London, and supported by Barakat Contemporary in Seoul, constitutes a renewed paradigm for the artist's practice and offers a rejuvenated view of ancient masterpieces through the eyes of an acclaimed contemporary artist. Shin has been working in both Seoul and London to reproduce historical relics and art pieces representing the specific culture from the present point of view by carving soaps. By ‘translating’ a statue of a Buddha into a carved soap, Shin questions the absolute value of experiences in various religious, historical, and cultural contexts.
