The 4th 4482 [sasapari] exhibition represents the largest ever showcase for Korean contemporary artists living and working in London. This year, entitled ‘Rhizosphere: Directions in Motion’, it presents the latest work from 60 artists at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, a cavernous 4-storey building located in London’s South Bank cultural quarter by the River Thames.

Highlights of the exhibition include work from the cutting edge talent, Dari Bae, who has crafted an intricate glass chandelier where inside, instead of conventional light, is human hair. (see image above)

Since 2007, 4482 [sasapari] has continued to highlight and document the works of an increasing number of South Korean artists in London. All participants created their works in Britain with Korean emotion and artistic talent. It aims to represent the cross-cultural dialogue in which the artists are inevitably engaged and is mirrored in the group’s name, 4482 (pronounced sasapari in Korean), a combination of the Korean and UK international dialing codes.

I find that most restaurants here don’t serve the bowl hot enough so the raw meat/egg doesn’t cook as nice and the rice doesn’t get that lovely crust.

Maybe after the bibimbap I can find a good bánh mì and life will be that little bit more complete.

By: Jennifer Barclay Fri, 28 Jan 2011 16:27:46 +0000 Best Korean restaurant in London? There are so many! I had great meals recently at Ran (Great Marlborough Street) and Myungga (Kingly Street), which my Korean friends think is excellent – they also like Kaya on Albemarle Street. I’ve not yet tried the new Bibimbap Soho which I’m sure does a great bibimbap – it’s getting great reviews! Asadal is also very nice (Holborn Station). Some people might prefer the restaurants in New Malden, though… A restaurant that shall not be named serves bibimbap with cold boiled egg – not so nice!

By: JAn Fri, 28 Jan 2011 12:28:48 +0000 So what’s the best Korean restaurant in London? Specifically, where makes the best bibimbap?

By: Lilac Thu, 27 Jan 2011 13:35:18 +0000 Great post, I’ll be following this blog for Korean food tips in future!

By: Jennifer Barclay Tue, 25 Jan 2011 14:46:22 +0000 For anyone wanting to know more about Korean events in the UK, THE site to visit is!

By: Julia Park Tue, 25 Jan 2011 14:32:14 +0000 I will have to hop over to London and check out New Malden, here in Amsterdam there isn’t a real presence of Koreans, but luckily a couple of Korean supermarkets. So, I think you will be seeing me over there real soon!

By: Waldorf London Tue, 25 Jan 2011 12:33:49 +0000 This is a “must-see” event.If you want relaxation or adrenalin or seeing beauty:-the music, Teakwondo and costumes will certainly give you just that. It starts normally during the November period but you have to stay posted so you dont miss out.

By: Jenny Tue, 25 Jan 2011 10:23:22 +0000 I recommend Cah-Chi in Earlsfield. Delicious Korean food and not very expensive. They don’t take cards so make sure you have enough cash with you. I tried kimchi for the first time there last week – although it was a bit spicy for me!
