Manchester's esea contemporary presents internationally acclaimed artist and filmmaker Jane Jin Kaisen in her first UK solo show 'Halmang'.

Jane Jin Kaisen was born on the volcanic island of Jeju, fifty miles south of the Korean Peninsula's coast. In this first UK solo exhibition of her work, Kaisen weaves oceanic cosmology and landscape together to explore how modernisation erodes memory and loss. Featuring recent work 'Halmang' (2023), the exhibition intricately connects the show's location, Manchester's former Victorian fish market, and the artist's ancestral ties to Jeju island, where her mother and grandmother made a living as a haenyeo sea divers harvesting seafood from the ocean.
