Just at the end of winter break, a new art space opened around the corner. I had seen the remodelling of a former café into the gallery Hapjungjigu (합정지구, directions and pictures on the Facebook-page) for some weeks and got to know some of the people involved.
The opening exhibition, simply called “Jigu Exhibition” (지구展, 2015.2.27 ~ 3.20), featured paintings and photographies by eight young artists (Lim Jin-Se, Kang Dong-Hyeong, Leesop, Lee Hai Min Sun, Hong Cheolki, Deok-Hyeon Jeong, Lee Ji-Young, Sim Heung-A / 임진세, 강동형, 이솝, 이해민선, 홍철기, 정덕현, 이지영, 심홍아). One show per month is planned, so the pictures are being taken down right now for the next one.
This picture is of a painting by Lim Jin-Se (임진세), whose solo show is upcoming soon.
When around, have a look at some interesting art! Also, the Café Adventure Story (카페 어드벤처스토리, also on Facebook) across the alleyway is highly recommendable, with nice cup-patbingsu and occasional live music.
