Moon—Synodic Month 달-삭망월
Lee Kwang Ho, a young artist who utilizes the delicate quality of ceramic, ed Anyang First Street (Scenery No. 8) for the subject of reinterpretation. Anyang First Street is a typical entertainment district that continuously changes its appearance on users desire but has a long history that betrays its loud façade. The development began in 1905 with the opening of the Gyeongbu Railway Linethe construction of Anyang Station, followed by the Post Office in 1924 Anyang Market (currently Jungang Market) in 1926, transforming the area into one of the most popular commercial districts in the city. The appearance of former Seoi-myeon Office alludes to the long history of the area. The artist installed *Moon Jar* at Seoi-myeon Office, which has stood as a witness for the fast-paced upsdowns of the largest commercial district in Anyang for a century. Situated well above eye level, which is typical in museum settings, *Moon Jar* stands as high as the fence of Seoi-myeon Offices an eerie feeling as if everything is frozen in time&mdashright at the center of bustling street.
 
The artist also installed *Moon Synodic Month*, a work that features a realistic representation of the moon surface, on the exterior wall of the observation tower on the Kimchungup Museum premises to introduce two different interpretations of the moon. Synodic month refers to the period of the moon phases, from one full moon to the after. The work presents the changes constancies of the moon through eight round ceramic relieves.
