The Museum of Silhak Special Exhibition on First Half 《The Woman, Communicates with Silhak》
Period/ 2017.04.17(Mon) ~ 2017.08.27(Sun)
This exhibition depicted the cultural activities of women centering on ‘poems’, mostly of female intellectuals in the Joseon Dynasty, and how knowledge and information became systematized in everyday life.
Most women in the Joseon Dynasty made frequent use of needle and threads instead of brush and inkstone. However, even when studies represented by brush and inkstone were the exclusive property of men, there were women who expressed themselves through pragmatic studies in everyday life like the woman in the Joseon Dynasty who said, “My wish is to reborn as a man and read all the books of the world.”
This exhibition introduces many women to introduce the life of women in the Joseon Dyansty. Key figures are Lady Jeong, the sister of Jeong Yak-yong, who wrote the biography of her father-in-law, Chae Je-gong, while living as a young widow; Jang Gye-hyang who is referred to as the ‘Mother of Joseon’ for bringing up children to become outstanding people; literary women such as Kim Hoyeonjae and Nam Jeongilheon; Kim Geum-won who climbed up Geumgangsan Mountain at the age of 14; Lady Jo of Pungyang who refused to become a so-called ‘chaste woman’; female neo-Confucian scholars such as Im Yunjidang and Gang Jeongildang; Yi Sajudang who compiled Taegyosingi; and Yi Bingheogak who wrote 「Gyuhap Chongseo」. These are people who pursued independence as women through literature, neo-Confucianism, and study of pragmatic science. This exhibition intended to feel the life of Joseon’s women by heart and the scholarly achievements made by female silhak scholars.
