HONG KONG.- Soluna Fine Art is presenting the group exhibition An Ode to Life at Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong. This show illustrates the lifestyle and aesthetics of Korean heritage, and it is curated for the viewer to interpret the attitudes, and ways of living in Korean culture. This group exhibition includes sixteen contemporary artists that work across various mediums, including paintings, photography, objects and crafts. An Ode to Life is on view at PMQ from 03 June to 04 July 2020.

The uncanny dream of reconnecting with nature returns to our conscious more than ever, especially amid the materialism and neoliberal civilization where nature and human modern lifestyle are positioned in an oppositional binary. Despite the ambivalence between human and nature, throughout the history of civilization, humans al- ways have complex cultural traditions and rituals that remind one to remember the infinite freedom, peace and joy when humans live in nature. In the Asian cultural context, of which Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism have been strong influences, this leads to a psychological outcry of desiring to live a minimalist, virtuous and spiritual life, as well as to transcend the cycle of rebirth.

In Korean culture, one of the most significant aspects of nature that illustrates the coexistence between human and the universe is the distinct four seasons, and such idea is frequently demonstrated in everyday lifestyle ob- jects and fine art. In this group exhibition, the artists portray the idealistic imagery of life and dimensions of beauty and aesthetics in Korean culture, specifically concerning clothing, eating and living; inviting the viewer to reflect upon the happiness by living a minimalist and high quality of life in the contemporary era.

The exhibition is divided into three areas across two floors in Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong (6 & 7/F) — Clothing, Eating and Living. The first space showcases the beauty of Korean clothing culture, including Hanbok, embroideries and modern jewelry. Moving on to the adjacent section is the illustration of a Han-ok inspired residential space, depicting the essential style of authentic Korean culture. Last but not least, the seventh-floor exhibition space reveals the aesthetics of Korean food culture, exhibiting high quality Buncheong ceramic and contemporary tableware in a tranquil setting.
