“Origin”at the Galerie Perrotin, Paris

The exhibition currently running at Galerie Perrotin, in Paris, curated by PARK Seo-Bo and called “Origin”, comes back on the eponymous movement which was initiated in 1962 in Korea and which gathered a few graduates from the prestigious Hongik University, in Seoul.

His original founders, CHOI Myoung-Young, SUH Seung-Won, and LEE Seung-Jio, who participate in this group show, exploit History, their own human frailties, as well as their recollections and memories of the conflicts they experienced (the Japanese occupation, the Korean War, the 4.19.1960 Revolution) to explore abstraction and render the sensation in its pure form. Their work is a crucial milestone in the history of Korean Art.
