“Which foods should be selected for sustainable consumption in the future?”
The Korea Pavilion will address various food-related issues that mankind is currently facing. Discussing these issues will help increase awareness and offer a direction to a reliable solution.

1. What Our Bodies Tell Us
The first exhibit addresses problems concerning contemporary eating habits and culinary culture. The exhibition focuses on the food crisis that we face today by expressing through artworks the problems caused by overeating, the consistent over-production of processed foods and the depletion of food resources.

2. Hansik: Ask and Korean Wisdom Shall Answer
“Symphony of Food: Balance” is an exhibit which symbolically illustrates the healthiness and harmonious composition of Hansik, which consists of all the elements, including the seasons, colors, and various ingredients. A multimedia show here portrays the notion of harmony, and the moving screen and floor is utilized to show the balance of foods and sum of all objects in nature.

2. Hansik: Ask and Korean Wisdom Shall Answer
“Science of Time: Fermentation” is an exhibit made with traditional earthenware vessel called onggi. Fermentation, the scientific characteristic of Hansik that includes the process of disintegration and synthesis of new ingredients through the formation and activity of yeast, is produced and illustrated on a large sphere.

2. Hansik: Ask and Korean Wisdom Shall Answer
“Wisdom of the Earth: Storage” produces the ambience of the venue. Onggi used to be buried underground, as its porous material allows it to “breathe,” something reminiscent of all living entities. Onggi represents the wisdom of Koreans through Korea’s traditional preservation science of absorbing the life-giving energy of the earth and also preserving solar energy.

3. Hansik: Food for the Future
The last exhibition venue conveys the value of Hansik as a resource and future food of the earth. Utilizing a landscape of refreshing greenery surrounding a huge circular hall of 16 meters in diameter, it enables visitors to view Hansik as a nature-friendly and sustainable food of the future that is based on scientific grounds. The Korea Pavilion offers all visitors the opportunity to look back on their culinary culture through these exhibits and share ideas about the future of food.
