Forbidden Fruit in London

5 – 22 Nov 2003
Victoria Miro Gallery

Opening in the Project Space of Victoria Miro Gallery (London), East of Eden is a sequel to “Forbidden Fruits” exhibited at Sungkok Museum of Arts in 2002. This exhibition is not a mere recreation of the previous exhibition, but an expansion on the concepts, showcasing the works of both Korean and British artists.

East of Eden has borrowed the notion of the Bible as a best seller that transcended time and place to forecast universal life, and not as a specific religious symbol, to represent diversity and differentiated thinking. In reflection to this, the artists portrayed the reality of ‘the loss of indicator of life’ through installation, video, sound, performance and photography.

Through the act of inter-weaving British and Korean artists, this exhibition illustrates the difference in understanding and opinion to the notion of ‘current positioning of humans’ that arise from cultural difference.
