In collaboration with Korea’s Asia Culture Center which aims to contribute to cultural exchanges between Korea and Asia, the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines is pleased to present its 10th Anniversary and Opening Commemorative Exhibition, Punghwa, Light of ASEAN.

In 2011, Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines opened its doors and has continuously exchanged cultural knowledge of both countries in the past 10 years. Throughout these years, the Center also learned about the similarities of Korea and the Philippines. 

One of which is their fondness to the ‘light culture’, a symbol of hope and a practice of wishing into the shining light in the dark sky.

This kinetic lighting artwork, Punghwa, Breezing Ember and Myohwa, Mysterious fire, perfectly reflects this message into a magnificent experiential imagery. This artwork, produced by media artist group SILO Lab, revolves around the theme of the aspects of light culture in the ASEAN.

Kinetic lighting work, Punghwa, Breezing Ember, which features re-mediated traditional lanterns, depicts the scene of people flying their wishes over the river. Together with Myohwa, Mysterious fire, which expresses the analog vibe of incandescent bulbs with ignition and extinction, they deliver the beauty of the lights and the dreamy impression of its glimmer.

The agency hopes the visitors have a meaningful experience by realizing Korea and the Philippines’ connection through the light that emits our hopes.

Korean Cultural Center is located at 59 Bayani Rd, Taguig City 
  • Weekdays: 9 AM-4 PM
