Actor KU HYE SUN is attending “MY TIME FOR HK” as an artist, an art exhibition to promote Hong Kong as the center of cultural exchange between the West and East.
The exhibition that is to be held from August 20 (Wed) to 28 (Thurs) at Seoul Jongro Insadong’s Ara Art Center is designed to promote Hong Kong as an art and cultural city in Korea, inviting Korean top artists to participate in the exhibit.
Invited by Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office and Hong Kong Tourism Board, the Korean artists visited Hong Kong for 5 nights and 6 days in late March. After travelling the country, they expressed Hong Kong in their own unique and creative ways. Yoon Jongsuk did so by materializing objects by folding clothes, Lee Hwankwon by expressing distorted shapes in sculpture, Park Sunki through installation and atmospheric perspective with dimensions, and Charles Jang through pop art. But the one that stood out was actor and director, KU HYE SUN.
KU expressed her impression of dynamic Hong Kong through object and drawing—her presence in the city as an actor.
Last October, KU was invited to Hong Kong to have her own exhibition “Gallery by the Harbor” at the city’s largest shopping mall Harbor City. She was enthusiastically spotlighted by local media and fans. KU commented, “I expressed Hong Kong’s dynamism yet the loneliness that comes from it. It resembled the emotions of human being. I am grateful that they liked my work and offered me to be part of this. I am honored to work with other artists.”
Recently, KU was highly praised for her excellent acting in “Angel Eyes,” and is currently working on the film “DAUGHTER,” for which she stars, directs and writes the scenario.
The exhibition opening will be held on the 1st floor of Ara Art Center at 5 pm on August 20, with the participation of Hong Kong and South Korea’s culture-related officials.
