From A Line

Kim Chong Yung Museum in Seoul has opened an exhibition of a Czech painter Michaela Žemličková. It is the first exhibition of a foreign author in the museum as well as the first exhibition of this Czech artist in Korea. The exhibition introduces about 70 works from various series as the White Silk, the Black Velvet, the Cycle of Love Acts or the Golden Trio. The exhibition runs till January 28, 2018.

Michaela Žemličková lives and works in the Czech City of České Budějovice. She studied under the guidance of the academic sculptor and pedagogue František Postl. In her works she uses classical style of drawing made by pen, brush and black ink on handmade and aquarelle paper. Her work is characterized by minimal vehicles of expression, simple pure lines, elegant curved lines, lightness and spontaneity. Using an original style of „one line“, she creates black and white drawings expressing detached view and the joy of life. She draws inspiration from everyday life, surroundings and various experiences and situations. Most of the works depicting women’s figure reveal typically female attributes as gentleness, delicacy and at the same time express women’s desires and passions.  Michaela Žemličková cooperates in the long term with the La Femme Gallery in Prague. Her drawings can be found in private collections and galleries in her home country as well as abroad. Regularly she has exhibitions in the Czech Republic and many other countries all over the world (Slovakia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Albania etc.). She made a commemorative certificate for the Capital City of Prague and illustrated many magazines and books.

Kim Chong Yung Museum located in a quiet part of Seoul right under the mountains close to the city centre was opened in 2002 on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the decease of one of the most significant Korean sculptor in the second half of the 20th century Kim Chong Yung. The museum was established to commemorate this important Korean artist with the aim to support young Korean artists. In 2010 a new building called Samiru was built to provide space for short-term exhibitions of various artists. The permanent exposition of Kim Chong Yung’s works is placed in the older building called Bulgakjae. In the museum there are a café and an archive with specialized research materials. The museum following the legacy of Kim Chong Yung is also dedicated to the education.
