Since the opening on December 15th, 2002, Kim Chong Young Museum has served as the most representative sculpture museum in Korea, and on December 15th, 2010, a new building, Samiru, opened adjacent to the existing one. The existing building, Bulgakjae, will be devoted to the special permanent exhibition for works by Chong Young Kim. The works of Chong Young Kim is based on Bulgak, which is discovering the authentic senses and the life of an object instead of imitating it. As a space devoted to permanent exhibition for Chong Young Kim, the old building is renamed Bulgakjae. The name Samiru is derived from the name of the outhouse, Samidang, of which the main house was where Chong Young Kim was born and raised in Changwon. Samidang was used as a guest-welcoming space after being relocated to be a part of Chong Young Kim’s main house in the late Joseon Dynasty, and it remains intact to this day. In this regard, the new building was named Samiru which will serve as a space for new artists who will continue the legacy of Chong Young Kim.
