I would like to begin by describing my educational background.
I studied both practical and academic area of Korean art, focusing on a diversity of genres, from ceramics, drawings to media art. After graduation, I participated in a lot of exhibition and educational events at the Seoul Art Center in the calligraphy museum department as the curator. Now, I have been studing the Records Management Specialist Course in President of Korean Graduate School of Archival Science, so I’m strongly interested the archives program and your digital environment in Victoria and Albert Museum. In this case, can I apply the V&A Samsung Korean Digital Art Residency program?
