Shining Living
14 March – 19 April 2014

Yvon Lambert is pleased to announce artist Koo Jeong-A’s eighth exhibition Shining Living, which will be held from 14 March to 19 April in the section Yvon Lambert On Paper. Here, Koo Jeong-A’s work unfolds in an ephemeral prose where the place reserved for creation becomes a repository of minimalist aesthetic of everyday. With Shining Living, the South Korean artist makes us question our ability to perceive. This visually diaphonic installation confronts us with the almost imperceptible meeting of the visible with the invisible.

Through the use of a broad range of media including painting, photography and installation, Koo Jeong-A invites viewers of her works to reforge their connection to the elements of the Sensible. In the world of Koo Jeong-A, the commonplaces are characterised by the extraordinary precision with which the ordinary and unique are ordered. Her work is distinguished by an artistic language in which each object presented is defined by its very existence.

Koo Jeong-A was born in Seoul in 1967. She now lives and works in London.

Since 1994, her work has been shown internationally, including solo presentations at ENSBA in Paris, FR, l’Espace Paul Ricard in Paris, FR ; the Musée d’Art Contemporain in Avignon, FR ; the Grand Palais, Paris, FR ; the Secession à Vienne, AT ; the Kunsthalle in Dussekdorf, GE ; the Institute for Contemporary Arts in London, UK ; the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo, No ; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, FI ; the Villa Médicis in Rome, IT ; the MART in Rovereto, IT ; the ArtSonje Center in Séoul, KR ; the Watarium Museum in Tokyo, JP ; the Tapai Fine Arts Museum, CN ; the Louisiana Museum of Art, US ; the Walker Art Center in Minnéapolis, US ; the Contemporary Art Museum in Baltimore, US ; Guggenheim Museum and the Dia Art Foundation in New York.
