The Resonance of Trees

The Korean Cultural Center Brussels shows the photo exhibition of “The Resonance of Trees” in collaboration with the Photo Brussels Festival. In this exhibition, 4 photographers ; KIM Jungman, KIM Sinwook, KIM Daesoo, LEE Jeonglok, with unique perspectives and experiences on trees tell the deep resonance of trees. Trees resemble humans in many aspects. The impression from projecting onto the tree may vary depending on the recipient. The four artists invited to this exhibition, KIM Jungman, KIM Sinwook, KIM Daesoo, and LEE Jeonglok, each have their own sentiment of trees that they want to picture on the frame. The tree of ‘KIM Jungman’, a participating artist at the 2022 Brussels photo festival, is a wounded being, and he thinks that the tree looks like the lonely himself. He communes with trees and wait 4 years until trees allow him to take pictures. After getting permission, he starts working on trees until he gets the image he wants. KIM Sinwook photographed trees have a light in the darkness from Korean forests to European forests, and KIM Daesoo photographed ‘Bamboo’ to capture the spirit of Korean noble scholars. LEE Jeonglok discovers energy and vitality in trees, and furthermore, in his photographs, he expresses a place beyond the real world, such as a mythical world.

The exhibition, hosted by the Korean Cultural Center in Belgium, contains the deep reverberation that trees want to communicate and want to convey. Such times as now where it is difficult to realize that we are living in harmony with nature, we hope that you can find comfort even for a moment in the deep resonance of trees.
