#문래동어딘가 (Somewhere in Mullae)
Mullae-dong, Seoul, South Korea
In the transitory period between the day work of the metal workers and the night work of the artists, the two overlap in place but never meet. Quickly walking through the winding streets of Mullae-dong to their second-floor studios, the artists only catch a glimpse into the livelihood of the factory workers, never quite fully understanding what is being made and for what purpose. Simultaneously, the factory workers overlook the existence of the artists and simply continue on with their work until it is time to return home. Although the two fail to acquaint themselves, their very existence in this particular time and place symbolizes the silent collaboration of forces that have shaped Mullae-dong into the intersection of art and metal that it is today.
