I’m about to board my plane back to the US and conclude my stay here in South Korea. For the past 10 days I have lived and worked with 25 Korean, Japanese, Swedish and Austrian artists in a residency-type environment. Each artist was expected to choose an area on Jarasum Island (Gapyeong County, NE of Seoul) and create a sculptural installation that responded to that site using predominantly natural materials. My installation is titled Moving Mountains and references one of South Korea’s most impressive aspects – their mountains! The opening reception included traditional Korean dancers, parade through the city and ceremonies honoring the spirits of agriculture. It was amazingly beautiful and I am proud to have been a participant. For more information about the Baggat Art Organization, click HERE.
