Minjung Kim: The Light, The Shade, The Depth

Running concurrently with the Venice Art Biennale 2015, the gallery Luxembourg & Dayan presents Minjung Kim: The Light, The Shade, The Depth. The show is a survey exhibition of the Korean artist Minjung Kim’s works made over the last fifteen years, curated by the art historian Jean-Christophe Ammann.

The exhibition presents three distinct groups within Minjung’s oeuvre: light flooded-mountain landscapes that shimmer through their diaphanous layers of sumi ink-painted and carefully charred paper; works with structures that adhere to the principle of order and disorder to create a myriad of individual constellations; and what Ammann characterizes as “the dance of the dervishes”, landscapes in which calm and tranquility are transposed into unrest by the dance of the brush in blue or red — a mark borne by the artist’s mood and honed by years of calligraphic training.

A catalogue with an original text by Jean-Christophe Ammann accompanies the exhibition.
