Leeum Museum of Art
In December, I went to the Leeum Museum of Art to see an exhibition.
This was my very first visit, so I first got lost before eventually finding my way to the main entrance.
Beautiful statues greeted me on this day with a clear blue sky.
The first section of the exhibition features celadons. Listening to the audio docent's explanation of each piece allowed for a more in-depth experience of the exhibit.
Even the stairs themselves were works of art.
Section 2. Buncheong celadon
Section3. Ancient texts and paintings
Ancient texts and paintings from Korea are beautifully displayed in Section 3.
Some artworks brought a sense of peace to my thoughts. It appears that the son of the famous Kim Hong-do was also a talented artist.
The exhibition concludes with a room that displays Buddhist art, including sculptures and calligraphic paintings.
"Gravity Stairs" by Olafur Eliasson
Last part of the exhibition, "Gravity Stairs" by Olafur Eliasson. Its mysterious illumination was really cool, and it is believed to have played a role in shaping the solar system.
Having heard that Champ Coffee is famous, I decided to have a cup of coffee in Leeum's lobby before leaving. Having the opportunity to view so many works of art for free was an unforgettable experience.
Outside of the Museum
It is thought that the three structures, which all have their unique qualities, were designed by three different architects.
