Mina Cheon: UMMA: MASS GAMES - Motherly Love North Korea
Oct 20-Dec 10
Just as the Korean peninsula is split, so is its contemporary artistic consciousness. Mina Cheon is a South Korean artist who collaborates with her North Korean alter-ego Kim Il Soon - a Socialist Realist painter, naval commander, farmer, scholar, teacher, mother, and human being. In this, the latest of Cheon's grapplings with the Korean schizo-imaginary, the topics of art, motherhood, games and hope come together in a reflection upon 'cult'ure, love and education.
