EXPO ‘Joungmee Do: Longevity’ – e.g.etal, Melbourne (AU) – 14 Juin-2 Juill. 2011

In Korean folklore, there are ten symbols of longevity: the sun, mountains, clouds, rock, water, cranes, tortoises, deer, pine tree and immortals’ fungus (pullocho). These symbols are representative of man’s deep desire for happiness in the present world and appear in folk paintings as decorative motifs.

Longevity is Melbourne-based Joungmee Do’s response to her exploration of Korean folklore. Her reworking of these auspicious symbols comes in the form of necklaces and brooches. Joungmee’s intricately detailed pieces employ traditional Korean metal inlay techniques (or iybsa) as well as complex etching and metal colouring. The result is work that links contemporary expression with the traditional Korean spiritual and symbolic world.
