Yun Hyong-keun

This exhibition at David Zwirner’s gallery in Paris, which is being held in cooperation with the PKM Gallery in Seoul, is dedicated to a formative creative period of the Korean artist Yun Hyong-keun from 1979 to 1984. During this time, he created works on hanji (Korean mulberry paper) and paintings that had never been shown in public before.

After his political persecution and censorship in South Korea, Yun found a new artistic freedom in Paris from the early 1980s. The effects of the brutal Gwangju Uprising of 1980 are reflected in his meditative Hanji works. This exhibition, which is also Yun Hyong-keun’s first solo exhibition in Paris since 2006, is accompanied by a catalog published by David Zwirner Books.
