To be sure, ancestral ritual tablesetting has changed in modern times, and should be changed. Ancestral ritual culture is the best of Korea’s cultural heritage, and it should be preserved and protected. As the organizer of this exhibition, we feel duty and responsibility to present beautiful Korean ancestral ritual tables that embody formality and dignity in the most appropriate way. More than anything else, we feel obliged to show tablesetting of the highest standards by upholding the spirit of communication and sharing, the essence of Korean ancestral ritual tablesetting for modern times. We updated the ancestral ritual table in consideration of all the aspects above mentioned. We focused on the meaning and formality of sacrifice on the ritual table and on appealing aesthetics. The table has been set for every member of the family and relatives to share food while having good conversation. It is a table of communication and sharing. Lastly, we tried to make tablesetting ecological. We specifically wanted to prevent waste of food and care for the environment of the planet earth.
