The sole name of ‘Sangchungok’, a song to praise spring ‘Sangchungok’, levitates our heart. Even when the world has frozen due to a pandemic, an exhibition featuring art and Hanbok makes us realize the fact that the spring arrives no matter what and rosy hope for the future still exists. Namwon City Kim Byeong Jong Art Museum presents the exhibition that mingles works of art and Hanbok. Hanbok has only been used as an object of art or used as a prop worn by characters on stage. It has been a symbol of Korean identity, a prop for movies and TV dramas, a formal attire for events, a tool to emphasize patriotism, a subject or an object for artworks.

This exhibition presents works of Hanbok by Kim Hyesoon and paintings from one of the great artists, Kim Byeongjong and Park Yeonok together, thereby marking a transition of Hanbok as art. Dialogue, Sangchungok shows a remarkable and unique encounter of these two: Hanbok and art. This combination offers an interesting and brilliant chance to break our prejudice. Not only it could go beyond bias of audiences, but it could be an inspiration to experts, thereby changing a paradigm of ways of thinking. In this sense, the exhibition Dialogue, Sangchungok is a welcoming achievement between Kim who has shown courage of utilizing hanbok as art and the museum which has embraced a future-oriented trend. This exhibition deserves a credit as it would expand the horizon of the art world.
