Shatto Gallery Reminiscence

Reminiscence showcases a collection of artworks that celebrate the amalgamation of diverse cultural influences. The works are inspired by the experiences of migration. The artists re-discover the creative processes of what was once familiar and juxtaposing with the new. Artists include: Hei Myung Hyun, Taeho Kang, Somoon Kim, Kaoru Mansour, Minoru Ohira, Echiko Ohira.

The artists featured in this exhibition also share a common narrative as migrants. These artists are from South Korea as well as Japan. They design and construct their own culture of place by interconnecting traditions, history, with the new environment. This migration story is emblematic of the South Korean and Japanese diaspora.

The six artists recollect their past to gather adjectives as materials to visually articulate their visceral feelings. Employing distinctive color palettes, references to cultural symbols, and found materials. These artists have also honed in on idiosyncratic mediums to convey their own development of artistic language. Through intricate paper sculptures, playful collage work, motifs of flora, systems of repetitive patterns, hieroglyphic symbols, and introspections of solitude, the various artworks embody the essence of the artists’ connections to the wisdom of nature and the traditions of their individual histories that they’ve held onto in their journeys.


Reminiscence demonstrates the multiplicity of inspiration through each individual artist’s journey. The artworks transcend time, as well as inviting viewers to rediscover their own memories and connections to nature. The artworks are a mosaic of diverse cultural influences, archaeological legacies, and multifaceted perspectives.
