‘Art Like Salt’ is the Taepyung Salt Farm Art Project sponsored by Taepyung Salt Farm Co. (C.E.O. Sangil Kim) and curated by LampLab (Director Suejin Shin). Taepyung Salt Farm is located on Jeungdo Island, known for large tidal flats and long sunny days that create the ideal conditions for Korea’s famous sea salt. Taepyung Salt Farm also operates the Salt Museum, once a salt storage, now preserved as a national cultural heritage. Many people visit Jeungdo Island every season to see the famous beautiful sunsets. We have created a new special exhibition hall in the Salt Museum which we hope will bring artistic inspiration.
