A New Space Around the Body – Emerging Korean Fashion Designers


Korean Cultural Centre, London, 2012.

Winner of British Council and British Fashion Council’s International Fashion Showcase Emerging Talent Award 2012 for the best project.

Please click here for press release, designed by Serge Martynov

A NEW SPACE AROUND THE BODY explores the new generation of South Korean designers, whose works are characterised by humour, hypothetic worlds and highly sculptural creations, almost appearing as a frame for the body. With an explosion of colour, modern techniques, craft and unexpected fabric combinations, their work can be seen as a reconstruction of the constituted ideal of beauty and non beauty, both on a visual, intellectual and philosophical level. Letting the contemporary garments resonate with the past, natural materials are used to form the backdrop of this exhibition with installations that are visually reminiscent of the aesthetics of traditional Korean doors, white cotton and the totem pole. Exhibiting are Minky Jaemin Ha, Juhee Han, Ara Jo, Minju Kim, Yeashin Kim, Yoolhee Ko, Katleen Kye and Unbounded AWE by Laykuni.

In keeping with the ethos of artist Karolina Kling’s working process, HEDMANKLING has commissioned the artists to create an imaginary character and base their sunglasses design on that fantastical persona. What results is an incredible cluster of hypothetical characters, which envelopes the spectator and can be constructed as a direct reflection of today’s avant-garde mind. The result is an absolute outburst of authenticity and integrity.

Co-edited by fashion curator Gemma A. Williams, the exhibition catalogue presents an exploration of this provocative subject via essays, conversations and reflections from leading theorists, artists, researchers and curators. Hoping to define the essence of this unusual accessory it includes submissions from Gus Wylie, Beatrice Behlen, Claire Goldsmith, Dr. Will Brooker, Ian Nader, Caroline Cox, Sonnet Stanfill, Neil Handley, Robert Rubbish, Marco Pecorari, Patricia Frost, Mary Carton, Diane Pernet and Amy de la Haye. Commissioned photos by Gavin Fernandes.
