LE NOIR EN CONSTELLATION
January 08 – February 26, 2022
Galerie Perrotin Paris
76 rue de Turenne 75003 Paris, France
Perrotin is pleased to present the fifth solo exhibition of Lee Bae at the gallery and the second in Paris. This time, Lee Bae has chosen to show five series of works as well as a large installation, all corresponding to his last twenty years of work.
We find the series Issu du feu, with its famous paintings made with pieces of charcoal; Landscape, defined by these large abstract landscapes radically separated into two spaces, one white, the other black; Untitled, composed of canvases designed with charcoal ink and acrylic medium. And we discover two new series, never before shown in France: the first, Brushstroke, composed of large-scale papers from which emerge shapes painted in charcoal ink; and the second, Issu du feu (White lines), characterized by pieces of charcoal on canvas topped with small white lines.
