To celebrate the Taste Korea festival, the Centre culturel coréen – or Korean Culture Center – nestled in Paris 8th arrondissement concocts an exclusive immersive and free exhibition inspired by the famous lantern festival. Meet from June 30 to September 9, 2022, to enjoy this fabulous journey!

Are you ready to board to the Country of the Quiet Morning? Until September 16, let us meet at the Paris Centre culturel coréen for the 2022 edition of the Taste Korea festival. On the menu? Culinary discoveries, screening sessions of major South-Korean movies, as well as two exbibitions shining a light on the diversity of Korean culture, between modernity and tradition. Among them? “Yeondeunghoe, un festival bouddhique de couleurs illuminées” – or “Yeondeunghoe, a Buddhist festival of illuminated colors” – themed on the Korean lantern festival. If you have never heard about it, this celebration is an institution in Korea. It is even part of the UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Every year, the lantern festival shines a light on the Korean Buddhist culture with an impressive parade of thousands of people holding paper lanterns.

To close the “Yeondeunghoe” installation, the Centre culturel coréen has a beautiful surprise this summer with an immersive, exclusive and free experience likely to take you on a journey. To discover from June 30 to September 9, 2022, at the auditorium of the Korean Culture Center, this immersive exhibition mixes Buddhist tradition and contemporaneity with video mapping projections.

Once in the auditorium, visitors are taken into a magical setting filled with colorful lights, played on three parts of the wall thanks to the latest visual technologies, designed by "davvero art" design creator. In front of us parade lanterns, pagoda, dragon, drum, waterlilies, Buddha... Magic happens, one is carried out by the pictures and the very lovely soundtrack played along the screening (for about 15 minutes).

For the immersion to be total and interactive, visitors are encouraged to take off their shoes and walk on the floor where are screen pictures to make flowers or sparkling dots pop as they walk!

Each slot covers 30 minutes, which is perfect to experience a fabulous multi-sensory moment, a genuine enchanted break.
