The 2018 Blue House Exhibition was held under the theme of 'Peace with the Light of the Thousand Years of Najeon and Lacquering'.
This exhibition is designed to show the special scene of meeting between the South and North Korea with the ultimate beauty beyond the time. The project was carried out with hope and desire to become one after realizing that the South and the North, which have lived with the same lifestyle from the past through the works of Najeon and lacquer ware, are Korean people. The works that come together under one theme show various uses and modern variations in life.
The video clip showing the production process of the works displayed at the Sarangchae Hall of the Blue House (Presidential office) shows the thoughts of Najeon, lacquerware, and craftsmen of the Korean people. The video has been shown in the exhibition space to provide an explanation to the people.
