KWAN YOUNG CHUN «AGGREGATIONS» EXHIBITION AT MMOMA (UNTIL MARCH, 13)
The Moscow Museum of Modern Art in collaboration with ASKERI GALLERY presents an exhibition of Kwan Young Chun, an internationally renowned South Korean artist. The exhibition will include key works by the artist created between 1990 and 2021. Arranged chronologically on two floors of the vast exhibition space, the works will present the history of the formation and development of the master, who skillfully combines European and Asian culture.
Original art objects styled as wall panels are created from hanji, a traditional Korean paper that is made by hand from the bark of the mulberry tree. It has been widely used throughout Korea for centuries and is employed in various fields, from making all kinds of household items to works of art and author’s design. For his compositions, Kwan Young Chun uses old accounting records, love letters and fragments of philosophical treatises, which he folds into small triangles in a special way, where the text serves as both an ornament and a message.
