Kyeol is a Korean word which often translates as grain or texture.
However, “kyeol” in Korean encompasses a wide range of meanings. “Kyeol” can describe the texture of tangible matters such as wood, skin, or hair. It can also denote intangible ephemeral concepts such as wind, breath, and time. Moreover, “kyeol” can be used to describe one’s personality. In art jewellery, the relationship formed by “kyeol” continues even further. Through the act of wearing an art jewellery, the wearer feels not only the physical “kyeol” of the artwork but also the “kyeol” of the artist. In this exhibition, Siat Gallery will present a wide spectrum of jewelry works made by nine renowned South Korean artists.
