‘SILENT MIND’ is an exhibition by Lloyd Choi Gallery for the London Design Festival 2022. The included works consider the meditative aesthetic of Korean craftsmanship, exploring how this can help us all find inner peace and consolation in turbulent times. The title reflects the calm and mindful status of the maker-artists the gallery represents, whose practices are hands-on and materials-led. These Korean artists, working with natural materials, hold a focus on process and understand the laws of nature - choosing to work with these, rather than against them. Like the unknown Korean potters of ancient times, they pursue an egoless state of mind in order to create true beauty in their contemporary practice. A beauty that possesses an imperfect, irregular and unabashed character – a consoling presence that creates space for others. SILENT MIND will present understated artist, Mok-su’s wood work for the first time outside of South Korea alongside new stunning works by international Korean artists Kwak Hye-young and Lee So-ra. “To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” – Lao Tzu
