UMMA : MASS GAMES – Motherly Love North Korea
MINA CHEON aka KIM IL SOON
Curator, Nadim Samman
October 20 - December 10, 2017
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.
Ethan Cohen Gallery presents Mina Cheon’s solo exhibition UMMA: MASS GAMES – Motherly Love North Korea, curated by Nadim Samman, and sending art to North Korea.
