CONSTANCY & CHANGE IN KOREAN TRADITIONAL CRAFT_2013 Una modernità che nasce dalla tradizione, capace di evolversi, pur preservando la sua autenticità
Humans have for a long time been using their hands to make whatever they needed in their lives. Industrial advancements have lifted some of the burden from human labor. However, there are still objects that shine brighter with the human touch. These are called crafts. Everywhere around the world, each culture has their own unique crafts. Lifestyle, culture, material, and skill determine the genre and style of each craft culture. Crafts have also been passed down through tradition for many years in Korea. From April 9 to 14, 2013, eleven works will be exhibited in the Triennale di Milano during the Milan Furniture Fair, representing Korea’s traditional crafts made with Korean natural materials. We introduce to you to the artists—ho have built a world of their own while keeping tradition alive— and to their works, which derive from the past but have evolved to communicate in the language of this age.
