A thought -provoking exhibition reflecting on life­-enhancing values derived from Buddhist and Eastern spirituality. Part of Kingston Welcomes Korea Festival.


The title of the exhibition is taken from a poem by South Korea’s most cherished poet, Ko Un, who was described by Allen Ginsberg as “a force of nature”. According to Ginsberg, Ko Un combines the wisdom of a “Buddhist cognoscente, passionate political libertarian and a naturalist historian”.

'Rain Doesn’t Fall for Nothing' invites us to consider questions about our impact upon the nature, possibly destructive, but also to reflect on how there could be an alternative,  more life-affirming approach, derived from Buddhist and Eastern spirituality.

Using various media, artists HaYoung Kim, Sang Jin Kim, Sea Hyun Lee, Sejin Park and Meekyoung Shin will question the problems inherent to the Western perception of reality, based on its classical Enlightenment methods of thought. In contrast, they will offer an interpretation and representation of reality filtered through their own sensibilities and sense of otherness.

The fusion between these approaches provides a renewed understanding of the states of mind that accompany our lives: how to live on earth and how to belong to that reality that still puzzles us.
