The concept of ‘우리[WOO:RI]’, which is a Korean word translated ‘we/our/us’, explores the socio-cultural and anthropological background of the Czech Republic, the nation of Baroque, Bohemian Culture and a deep passion for ideology. 10 Korean artists create inter- relational dialogue from the linguistic perspective of the word ‘우리[WOO:RI]’, through the multi-sensory visual language of contemporary art.
