An Exhibition & Performance by The Korean Artists Association UK
The Korean Artists Association UK (KAAUK) is delighted to present “Obangsaek(오방색)” at the Korean Cultural Centre UK. Obangsaek refers to the five traditional Korean colours of blue, red, yellow, black and white. There will be dance and music performance on the opening reception of the group exhibition at the Korean Cultural Centre.
Music is performed on the keyboard, gayageum, flute and traditional percussion instruments (kanggwari, jang-go, jing, and buk). The main rhythmical pattern is the traditional chil-chae(칠채) in which percussion holds a complex rhythmical structure in four long sections while other instruments improvise.
The dance performance, “Bridging Colours”, brings out the relationships of the five colours to the seasons and the elements.
