On 28th November 2012, The Korean Artists Association UK (KAAUK) presented Obangsaek at the Korean Cultural Centre UK.
Obangsaek refers to the five traditional Korean colours of blue, red, yellow, black and white. These symbolize: tree, fire, iron/gold, water and earth respectively, associations which percolate deeply through Korean culture.
The UK based Korean Artists of KAA here explore Obangsaek through visual arts, music, dance and performance.
Visual artists presented diverse media; painting, sculpture, illustration, video, photography and installation.
Music was performed on the keyboard, kayagum, flute and traditional percussion instruments (kanggwari, jang-go, jing, and buk). The main rhythmical pattern is the traditional chil-chae in which percussion holds a complex rhythmical structure in four long sections while other instruments improvise.
