- Professor at Chung-Ang University and Contemporary Artist, Bernd HALBHERR
German contemporary artist Bernd HALBHERR has been living and working in Korea since 2006. He presents new perspectives on the visual perception of the surrounding environment by participating in numerous solo and group exhibitions in both Korea and Germany. In particular, his spherical sculptures composed of 360 degrees panorama photographs taken in various locations including Baroque or Gothic cathedrals in Western Europe, traditional houses known as hanok, caves in Jeju, and forests of Hallasan Mountain in Korea that have been stitched as collages on styrofoam balls have attracted much attention both locally and globally. Moreover, he is educating future artists as a professor of the sculpture department at Chung-Ang University.
This week on "Heart to Heart," we meet professor Bernd HALBHERR, who is adjusting to the rapidly changing Korean society, and listen to his interesting world of art and moreover stories about his life in Korea.
