DESCRIPTION: KF Gallery (Korea Foundation) is hosting an exhibition entitled “Life of Deportation and Settlement: Koryo-saram, Samosely and abandoned Places in Ukraine”. The exhibition, held in cooperation with the Shcherbenko Art Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine, will display photos of Korean artist Jung Sung-tae and Ukrainian art duo Krolikowski Art. Jung’s photos shed light on the stark reality of the Koryo-saram, ethnic Koreans who were once deported from their homes in the Russian Far East and later settled down in Ukraine, and examine the lives of the Samosely, or “self-settlers”, who remained in or returned to the exclusion zone around the site of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. The photographs by Krolikowski Art mirror the artists’ memories of their own hometown, ravaged by undeclared war that hit Eastern Ukraine. Through Jung’s photos, retracing the history of the Koryo-saram resettlement, and his works about the Samosely, who still live amidst the aftermath of Chernobyl tragedy, along with memories attenuation that was grabbed by cameras of Krolikowski Art, the exhibition reflects the exhausting process of letting go of the past. By exploring it through the prism of “deportation and settlement” and recording the results in the form of photography, the artists reinterpret people’s lives and surroundings.
