Korea's Samil Movement is commemorated on March 1st. Today marked the 88th anniversary of the Independence Movement against Japanese colonial rule. It also meant I was "free" from work.
I took bus 7000 from Suwon to Sadang Station, and rode the metro to City Hall station to see the Rene Margritte 'Empire of Dreams' exhibition at the Seoul Museum of Art: SeMA.
Deok Su Gung Palace has quiet grounds including a pond and benches. Korea's National bird rustles the trees.
Next came Rene Magritte's Empire of Dreams, sprawlling two floors. Rene is a surrealist master of the 20th century, a revolutionary artist. The exhbit included a display of intimate photos and videos, inviting the world into Rene's life and marriage.
Instead of juxtaposing unrelated objects to shock the eye, he places familiar ones in abstracted contexts. There's a mesmerizing quality to his work. Even if his art isn't your thing, you won't be able to peel your eyes way.
