“Fleurs qui ne se fanent pas" (flowers that don’t fade)
Exhibition at Angouleme’s international comics festival, 2014, about the Korean women abducted and raped by Japanese soldiers during the war.
This exhibition was AMAZING. I was blown away by the beauty and quality of the pages, and the incredible diversity of the choices the artists made to talk about those tragic events and testimonies. In the last room there was a wall covered with little messages left by the visitors, in many different languages, to support the victims of the war.
I left it with tears in my eyes but I was also extremely impressed by the authors’ talents: Jeong Ki-young, Kim Gwang-sung, Tak Young-ho, Lee Hyun-se, Baek Sung-min, Park Jae-dong, Cho Kwan-je, Oh Sé-young, Ahn Soo-cheol, Kang Hyo-suk, Kang Do-ha, Park Kun-woong, Keum Suk Gendry-Kim.
