4482 Sasapari Exhibit, All Aboard Seoul to London Art Express, February 25-28

Had Gyeyeon Park, the event coordinator not contacted me a few days ago, 4482 [Sasapari] would have come and gone without my knowledge.

2010 marks the 3rd Edition of 4482 [Sasapari], an annual showcase for Korean contemporary artists living in London.

What's this group project all about?

Here's how the organizers describe it:

"What started with ten Korean artists exhibiting in ‘The Open’, New Malden, 2007 has transformed into 4482<1> Sasapari , Barge House, Oxo Tower, and has consequently become the largest ever showcase of contemporary Korean artists in the UK.

4482 stands for the combination of the UK and the Korean international dialing codes. For 4482 artists, this is not just a set of numbers but a formula that represents a cross cultural dialogue. Specifically, fifty three artists who were raised and educated in Korea, came to the UK for further education, and their practice now reflects the result of two cultures interacting.

This exhibition has now become a significant cultural movement, one of contemporary Korean artists delivering the spirit of ‘Yuhakseng <2>’ to a wider British and European audience. This is mirrored in the curatorial process, which stays true to Korean cultural identity by closely involving all of the fifty three artists."

The work of 53 artists will be displayed.

Ben Rye Vino Passito, Sweet Dreams for My Tenderest Twosome

Feb 24
I don't really drink dessert wines usually. At Vino 2010 and a just a couple of days ago at Tre Bicchieri tasting, I discovered Vino Passito and have grown fond of it. When I noticed Your Tenderest Twosome offered by The Domestic Goddess as the theme for Wine Blogging Wednesday #66 in tandem with Sugar High Fridays, I had grapes to pick on. Now I had to narrow my choices. Maybe because it is the...
