A Tiny Pavilion Hovering over the Moon
In a field trip to the National Museum of Contemporary Art of Korea, I came across the piece Wol In Cheon Ji (2012) by Korean artist Choon Sup Lim in his solo exhibit, Luna, and Her Thousand Reflections.
On one side stands an enormous wooden structure that resembles a loom. The other side consists of four columns with thread.
In the middle lies a lovely installation of a tiny pavilion that is hovering over a changing projection of the moon’s surface.
There was something incredibly light and peaceful about this piece, which took up an entire room. So lovely! The exhibit runs until February 24, 2013.
Inspiring post for contemporary Korean art! Sharing with you Kim Sooja’s beautiful artwork.. http://wp.me/p3bwN9-2d
Hi Catherine, thanks for posting, I met Mr. Lim here in NY, he lives next block from me. He is in a group show now in a gallery in Tribeca. I went to opening and I fell in love with his work the moment I saw the pieces, I didnt know him before this show, and I had a chance to meet him too.
So I was so right in my appreciation of his work. He’s a giant artist.
