Sinjeong Seo

Sinjeong Seo, the 53rd important cultural asset and master of chaesangjang, learned the technique from her father, SEO Hankyu. Chaesangjang is a technique of bamboo weaving. Since bamboo is the main material for her work, her studio is situated in Damyang, a region rich in bamboo. Her works range from traditional forms to modern ones. Three woven bamboo boxes (in different sizes, made without dye), two round cases, two open-style baskets, bells and props are showcased in the exhibition. These were originally used for storing sewing tools, and keeping valuables.

Seo has participated in numerous fairs and exhibitions around the world including the KOREA NOW exhibition in 2015.
