The story begins by discovering and recognising parallel experiences in modern history that is shared coincidentally or inevitably between the two countries. The Seould exhibition (July 21-September 2 2017, Arko Art Centre) leads to Gimhae (March 8-29, 2018, Gimhae Arts and Sports Centre).”  – Sunyonng Oh
