The common denominator in Jeju and Bali island

Curatorial by Yang Donghun, Director of Jeju Museum of Contemporary Art

Jeju and Bali, they have a similar modifier of fantastic island. The true virtue of the two islands is from a unique regionality. It inherited from a long and intense history. As a representative tourist attraction, Jeju and Bali have a splendid appearance. Also, we surprised that they're an independent kingdom in the past and had a common denominator of the invasion, resistance, and development.

The art of Jeju and Bali is evaluated as the thing of an exotic color in their country. In the Korean culture focused on the Confucianism, the tradition of Jeju with various myths and shamanism remained as a tangible or intangible assets. It becomes a rich inspiration to contemporary artists in Jeju. Recently, we seek the value of it as cultural contents.

It's the same in the case of Bali. Bali is primarily made up of Hindus, and it made an unique identity. With a picturesque natural environment, the traditional spirit produced indigenous arts. The art was introduced to the world by many artists of Bali, and obtained own existence and brilliant value. Presently, the artistic assets make an impression to many visitors in Bali.

This exhibition shows the face in the past and present of the two islands. Artists who seek the own characteristics about Jeju in macroscopic standpoint tell a rarified echo of Jeju sea at this time every year. The screen of their works silently whispers a sincere life of Jeju people in the low place. It is interesting how the artists of Jeju will create a new interpretation about the regionality. In the same manner, the artists of Bali exhibit various works based on the traditional color and life & culture of contemporary Bali people. The story in a refreshing color and image makes a friendly meeting with Bali. This exhibition will be a valuable chance to appreciate the new spray from a big stream of the culture and tradition in Bali under the steep waterfall of contemporary times. What a valuable islands that glitter with their own faces and voices in Asia of the proud cultural ocean!
