Hakgojae Gallery is pleased to announce a
solo exhibition of Yoon Hyanglan from 24th November to 31st
December, 2010 at Space 2. She graduated from Hongik University and received
MFA from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris. Through
unconstrained expression of lines, she flexibly expresses her internal world
and her reaction toward the world.
Yoon’s work can be broadly organized into
napa cabbage drawing series, collage and energy of life drawing series and new
works . The subject she chose, ‘napa cabbage’
symbolizes her homeland and longing for her mother. She puts paper on canvas
and draws napa cabbage on it. She moistens and removes the paper to replace it
on the new canvas. Such working process contains Korean sentiment.
This exhibition also shows series, which present one aspect of her everyday life in
France. The displayed documents are the only proof of her identity as an alien
in France for 25 years. The lines filled in on papers are attributes to her
sorrows and agony in the foreign country. From this exhibition, the viewers may
experience Yoon’s rich world of art that she firmly established in France.
