핀란드 할로넨 전 대통령 전시 축하를 위해 숙명여자대학교 방문


이번 전시에는 타르야 할로넨(71) 핀란드 전 대통령이 오프닝 당일인 22일 숙명여자대학교 문신미술관을 방문했다. “리더란 변화를 만드는 사람이 아니라, 국민들이 변화를 만들어내도록 이끄는 사람”이라고 말하는 할로넨 전 대통령은 핀란드를 ‘작지만 강한나라’로 만든 여성 지도자이다. 이날 할로넨 전 대통령은 ‘부드러운 리더십’을 목표로 여성리더를 양성하는 숙명여자대학교를 방문하여 핀란드 작가들과 한국 작가들의 교류를 축하했다.






 

 

Speech by President Tarja Halonen
Opening of the exhibition <A View from the Other Side> 22.10.2014
at Sookmyung Women's University Moonshin Museum


Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am very happy to be here today with you on this wonderful occasion.
It is my 4th time to visit Korea and each time I have marked the surprisingly active cultural exchange between our countries of which this exhibition is yet another great example.
I am delighted to see the excellent selection of 6 artists from Finland presented in this exhibition and working alongside with appreciated Korean artists.
This exhibition, A View from the Other Side, provides a unique opportunity to experience the leading media art from both Korea and Finland, two countries with different cultures and natural environments, yet connecting each other via art.
The exhibition has been made possible by support of the hosting Sookmyung Women's University, The Frame Visual Art Finland and the Embassy of Finland. But I have learned that behind everything is the passion and personal dedication by the curators Ms. KyoungA Hong, Ms. Jinhee Nah and Ms. Seihee Shon, whose knowledge of Finnish media art we can thank for the idea of this exhibition and its brilliant concept. I truly hope that this occasion will further enhance international exchange in visual arts between Finland and Korea.

Finally, I would like to express my appreciation to Sookmyung Women's University Moonshin Museum for hosting the exhibition. I hope that Sookmyung Women’s University which has over 100 years of tradition and history continues to educate and train female leaders qualified with good understanding of culture and art.

Thank You.

Tarja Halonen
President of Finland
