'Mother and Daughter celebrates the relationship of women; the epicenter of life. Herein lies their collective history, a history that cultivates love through each generation. In particular, female artists of Japan and Korea commemorate these relationships using contemporary mediums representing the memories of their lives. Asian daughters grow up cherishing a humble obedience while simultaneously nurturing indelible passion and creative energy. This duality of mother and daughter has been delineated by these artists with acute vision.' - extracted from article by Jin Whui-yeon.
