Museums

 Last weekend I had a day off on friday and therefore a long weekend so I decided to check out the Chicken art and Owl Museums on the friday as I was sure I was the only person in my group to be weird enough to want to see them! While I was in the museum area I stumbled upon an exhibition about North Korean Political Prisons which I went to check out too. On saturday my crew was going to Hongdae for a friends birthday and decided to visit the 'trick of the eye' art gallery while we were there. So here are a few funny pictures of us interracting with the art work!
 Enjoy!

The owl who was afraid of the dark
Lovely sunny day. Is spring on its way?
Owl-ly
Basically don't do anything that remotely constitutes free will. Otherwise they will kill you.
Interesting exhibition with tesimony from people who escaped the camps. One guy who had actually been born in a NK Gulag!


FYI: to get to the Chicken art museum, go to Anguk station (orange line 3) and go out of exit 2 and walk straight. There are sign posts to the museum. For the Owl museum take exit 1 and walk along the main road, alongside a traditional hanbok house (you can only see the wall) walk up here and you'll get to samcheongdong road and the owl museum. The North Korea exhibition was temporary.
Money money money
Don't mind if I do
Willy Wonkers chocolate factory
Sooae was rather annoyed
Reminds me of that painting where the dogs are playing pool... or are they playing cards..
Stubborn as a mule

Dogma
Parisian cafe
Love boat
Hard work
Hayley informed me afterwards that I looked like the statue squatting for a poo. Lovely
Stood up
Yes, She's holding his poo


FYI: The trick of the eye art gallery is in Hongdae. Go out of exit 9 and walk straight until you get to VIPS restaurant. Take the left turning and cross over the road. Turn right at 'tony moly' shop and walk about 2 minutes. You will see a small doorway and the trick of the eye art gallery is signposted there. It's in basement 1.
