Exhibition by feminist artist, Yun Suk Nam til Feb 24

The gallery Hakgojae --- located on Samcheongdong-gil next to Gyeongbokgung Palace --- is hosting an exhibit of the work of feminist painter Yun Suk-Nam through Feb 24. The exhibit is a continuation of Yun's exhibit at the Arko Art Center in October of last year. Through her creation of 108 wooden dogs --- artistic expressions of 108 stray dogs abandoned due to mankind's capriciousness --- she holds a memorial ceremony for the dogs' salvation.

Through the exhibition, we can reflect on our insensitivity to abandoned things. Yun started carving 1,025 wooden dogs in 2004, when she met Lee Ae-Shin, who takes care of abandoned dogs. For more information, visit the website of Hakgojae.
