Correspondence - Ufan Lee

Ufan Lee Correspondence
A pioneer of the Japanese Mono-ha (School of Things) movement, Ufan Lee arranges his installations and sculptures to emphasize the equal relationship between the artwork, the viewer, and the space, a philosophy best illustrated by his “Relatum” series, a series of stretched canvases on the floor, each topped by a single stone. Lee uses materials including glass, steel, rubber, and stones in shades that are usually subdued and often monochromatic. His paintings exhibit a similar logic, applying muted color on a light, plain background in a style reminiscent of East Asian calligraphy, whereby the brush stroke fades as it ends.

Aggregation 001-SE080 - Kwangyoung Chun

Kwangyoung Chun Aggregation 001-SE080
Kwangyoung Chun is known for the paper sculptures and textured surfaces he has built of Styrofoam triangles wrapped in this paper—each shape is individually dyed, and his colors are sourced from natural extracts. Chun’s sculptures create the illusion of depth and coalescence and, ultimately, represent the harmony and conflict in the unity of many.

    Detailed Description : Jean-Louis Poitevin “(…)The challenge of the approach of Jaewook Lee is simple: go in, to see what happens between sound and color, as between one discipline and another, as between matter and spirit as are de facto caught in a complex set of relationships that we like just to deny or explain by quibbles theologically uncertain trend.(…) This is what Lee Jaewook by sliding between these two complementary versions of the world, too quickly appointed order and chaos, fluid forms, flows materialized lightened sound intentions and issued intellectual experiences of psychic heavy duty tell the truth or duty to an object or having to dwell on its own heaviness.”
