Take me to the River

Totally Thames Take me to the River presents a month of river-themed events – pictured here are St Paul’s aglow for #Londonsburning, the Fire Garden at the Tate Modern and Floating Dreams, an eye-catching installation by South Korean artist Ik-Joong Kang.

Floating Dreams is made up of 500 drawings which have been transferred onto Hanji, a traditional Korean rice paper, and transformed into a single work of art. Illuminated from inside, the lantern structure records memories from the time of the Korean War of 1950-53, and serves as a beacon of hope for the reunification of North and South Korea.
