About Sarangbang Exhibition: This exhibition will provide deeper understanding on the living spaces of the Joseon Dynasty, while also promoting Korean aesthetics and the philosophies of classical scholars known as the Seonbi. The writing desk, oil lamp, calligraphy brush, ink stone, India ink, wooden pillow, scroll shelf, brazier, and chamber pot featured in this exhibit were carefully selected from the collection at the Onyang Folk Museum. Their structural beauty, simplicity, and modesty underscore the Seonbi’s ideal of elegant restraint. This exhibit will also attempt to merge the traditional elements of the Sarangbang with our modern lifestyle.
The Sarangbang was both a place of study for the Seonbi (Confucian scholars) of old Korea, a setting for mastering the old and learning the new as well as a place of education and the fostering of future scholars. Each room was equipped with a wide range of items related to learning from the “Four treasures of study”.
