The fourth 4482 [sasapari] exhibition represents the largest ever showcase for Korean contemporary artists living and working in London.
A 'Rhizome' is a subterranean stem spreading out in any direction. It is a system of connections with no hierarchy and no order. The title; 'Rhizo + Sphere' refers to both the space and time of the exhibition, reflecting 4482's nature as a continually evolving voluntary group of artists with works covering a wide variety of themes, ways of expression and mediums.
Highlights of the exhibition include work from the cutting edge talent, Dari Bae, who has crafted an intricate glass chandelier where inside, instead of conventional light, is human hair. (see image above)
Since 2007, 4482 [sasapari] has continued to highlight and document the works of an increasing number of South Korean artists in London. All participants created their works in Britain with Korean emotion and artistic talent. It aims to represent the cross-cultural dialogue in which the artists are inevitably engaged and is mirrored in the group's name, 4482 (pronounced sasapari in Korean), a combination of the Korean and UK international dialling codes.
