Road to Korea, Korea seen through the eyes of a Belgian artist

The Road to Korea exhibition is organised in the margin of the 120th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Belgium and Korea. In it, the Brussels artist Bert De Keyser presents his vision of Korea, with a variety of artworks, subdivided into four themes.

In “Travel Diary”, Bert De Keyser takes visitors on a journey through his drawings of landscapes and portraits and a collection of curious objects.

The “Bruegel” project presents the work of eight Korean artists who have participated in several group exhibitions alongside Bert De Keyser.

“Belgian art in Seoul” gives visitors a preview of an exhibition with works by Belgian artists to be held in Korea in October 2020 as part of the Belgian Festival: Philippe Geluck, Denis Meyers, Hans Op de Beeck, Carole Solvay, Benoit + Bo and Bert De Keyser.

Finally, “Mega Frame”, the last section in the exhibition, presents the sketches, scale model and research that Bert De Keyser conducted for an installation in Korea as part of the Yellow Frame project. This project has already been installed in several countries across Europe and aims to raise people’s awareness of the environment in which they live.

The Road to Korea exhibition will run from 17 June until 20 August 2021 at the Brussels Korean Cultural Center. Tickets can be booked here.
