SI LOIN, SI PROCHE : LE PAYS DU MATIN CALME

Ji-Young Demol Park, Lee Lee Nam

March 20, 2024 - June 30, 2024

"This exhibition offers a unique dive into the meeting of two contemporary Korean artists, Ji-Young Demol Park and Lee Lee Nam. Among a plethora of ancient works from the Guimet National Museum of Asian Arts and the Baur Foundation, their landscapes unfold through the centuries-old connections woven between cultures and objects, materials, hues, and patterns. Celadons the color of jade and pine, horizons tinged with cobalt oxide blue, porcelains with coatings as white as snow or the moon, all echo the work of the two creators whose gazes intersect and converge in the mountains of the great painter Jeong Seon (1676-1759). Many follow in the footsteps of the famous artist from the Joseon period (1392-1910) and see themselves in him. But what unites Ji-Young Demol Park's ink-drenched peaks and Lee Lee Nam's virtual landscapes through their differences is both the fertility of their relationship with this heritage and the power of their respective universes oriented towards a certain re-enchantment of nature."

 "Inspired by the alpine relief of Lake Geneva, South Korean artist Ji-Young Demol Park paints the contrasts and panoramas of the lake. 

This series of paintings in Indian ink and watercolour conveys, more than it represents, the serenity and fascination that the subtle balance of water, mountains and sky exerts on the viewer. 

A contemplative and sensory work with a rare aesthetic." 

Pablo Thuler - Revue "Aimer lire"  des Librairies Payot - Suisse
