"Koo Jeong A ~ Z"

January 14 - February 20, 2010

Yvon Lambert New York is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by South Korean artist Koo Jeong-a entitled Koo Jeong A ~ Z. This show will run concurrently with an exhibition of new work by Markus Schinwald. Both exhibitions open with a reception for the artists on Thursday, January 14, 2010 from 6-8 pm and will be on view until February 20, 2010.
This exhibition marks Koo Jeong-a’s second solo show at Yvon Lambert New York. She has had six exhibitions at Yvon Lambert Paris, and in November 2010 she will have a solo exhibition at Dia at the Hispanic Society in New York.
Koo Jeong-a incorporates diverse materials, images, and landscapes that are often considered nonartistic or have been overlooked or forgotten by society. Her work, which always consists of sitespecific elements, is ephemeral by nature. For each installation, she seeks to assemble various objects,
videos, and drawings that she carefully reveals, although sometimes hidden from the spectator’s view.
The artist stages the infinitely small, even the invisible, therefore revealing both the beauty and the poetic qualities of banal objects and moments.
Koo Jeong-a was born in 1960 in Seoul, South Korea. She attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and currently lives and works between London and Berlin. Selected solo exhibitions: Centre international d’Art et du Paysage de l’île de Vassivière; Aspen Art Museum; Centre Pompidou; CCA Kitakyushu. Selected group exhibitions: Torino Triennale; Eurasia/ Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Revereto; Villa Manin; Il Tempo del Postino/ Manchester International Festival; La Force de L’Art/ Grand Palais; 2005 Moscow Biennale; 2004 Sydney Biennale.
