Mr. K and the collection of korean history, 2010-17

“I have been paying particular attention to the circumstances in Korea as I work. That extended my interest from contemporary Korea to the Korea before I was born. In 2010, I started collecting objects related to Korean politics and power. More than 1,000 objects were collected. The collection includes the Japanese Government General of Korea publications, appointment certifications and medals awarded by former presidents, handwritten texts or books by them, presidential records, newspapers from the past, notes issued by community village offices, wristwatches, voters directory and more. The Mr. K archive is only part of the many objects I collected.” Lee Wan
