Touch the Conversation - Fermenting NewOld
Placing large Korean fermentation jars on the historic site where Canadian fermenting crock pots used to be produced has significant meaning for Grace Han and is something she has been envisioning since she immigrated to Canada. When audiences enter the installation space, they are surrounded by the sounds of fermentation that was recorded when Korean traditional rice wine was fermenting in these Onggi jars, which were created in a beehive kiln during the residency here at Medalta. Viewers are welcome to touch the vessels as they listen to the sound of the transformation that occurred inside these jars. The closing reception will be held during Medalta's Heritage Christmas Market - November 23rd from 2-4pm.
