AU-DELÀ DES SOUVENIRS - Lee Ufan chez Le Corbusier, Couvent de la Tourette: Sept. 20 - Dec. 20, 2017 / by Hannah Moon

Couvent de La Tourette 69210 Eveux - L'Arbresle FRANCE http://www.couventdelatourette.fr Associated exhibition to the 14th Biennale de Lyon On the occasion of the 2017 Biennale, Lee Ufan (1936, South Korea), one of the most influential Korean contemporary artists on the international scene, has been invited to create a dialogue with the convent architecture. In his sculptural work, Lee Ufan, brings together antagonistic elements. He confronts natural materials (wood, stone, cotton) with industrial materials (metal, glass, mirrors) and plays with notions of emptiness, space and energy. Through (the balance of) their contrasts, the elements reveal their shape, their mass and their relationship with the surrounding space. Lee Ufan has exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Tate Modern in London, the Kunstmuseum, Bonn and the Yokohama Art Museum. He also took over the Château de Versailles in spring 2014.
