2014, Day 14: Keumsan Gallery, Heyri Art Valley


A short (40 mins) bus ride north from Seoul is a curious place called Heyri Art Valley.  It’s a contemporary architeure dream, with most buildings being built since 2001 (and growing), full of concrete boxes, glass, cantilevers, quirky shapes, and in one case, Keumsan Gallery, space in the concrete for a tree to grow.  The buildings contain galleries and cafés and apparently also art spaces and homes, although it all seemed a bit deserted and desolate to us.  We kept having to remind ourselves that it was a Tuesday in the middle of January.  Hardly peak season!!  A very interesting place to wander though. And I imagine it looks lovely in the spring!

Taken on my Olympus Pen.  Setting: Aperture Priority.  Aperture: f5.6; Shutter: 1/640; ISO: 100.
