After Death, A Tiger’s Skin Remains: Expat Artist Martyn Thompson on Sewol Disaster, One Year
On April 8-21, 2015 With Opening Event April 11
"The Captain" by Martyn Thompson

British-born artist Martyn Thompson is thrilled to be exhibiting his fifth solo show in Korea, “After Death, A Tiger’s Skin Remains: A Man Leaves Only his Name.”Set over the one year anniversary of the Sewol disaster, the exhibition examines the key characters in the disasters.

“The show investigates how the media reported the tragedy,” says Thompson. “I've symbolically depicted some of the key characters, as they were during the event.”

Each image in the exhibition was created with a “dojang” – a Korean stamp – to apply Korean ink (inju) to traditional Korean paper (hanji).

The result is the striking pictures of The Ship, The Captain, and The Student that are attached to this email.“The show investigates how the media reported the tragedy,” says Thompson. “I've symbolically depicted some of the key characters, as they were during the event.”

He adds, “Name stamps traditionally hold permanence and dignity. I hope by using them, I can honour the lives of those victims who never received one.”Martyn Thompson has lived in Ilsan and Paju since 2007.

He is the head of the International Artists’ Collective (IAC) and the Professional Artists’ Network of Korea (PANK). He has put on 4 solo exhibitions, partaken in over 30 group shows in Korea, and curated a further 8 exhibitions.

He has been interviewed widely in Korea, and Groove magazine recently chose him as one of the 100 Most Influential Expats in Korea.
