Art Paris Art Fair is the leading fair for modern and contemporary art held in the spring in Paris which this year brings together 143 galleries from 22 countries.
The fair remains true to its concept of “cosmopolitan regionalism” introduced four years ago. In 2016, the fair continues to concentrate on parts of Europe and the singular art scenes of cities like Marseille, Milan and Zurich while also looking further afield to places like Azerbaijan, Colombia, and Iran, and of course Korea, this year’s guest of honour.



Every night from 30th March to 3rd April 2016, from 7pm to midnight, the façade of the Grand Palais undergoes a series of spectacular transformations with monumental projections of unseen work by six artists from Azerbaijan, Korea, Switzerland and France.

YEESOOKYUNG, When I Become You, courtesy Junghwa LEE, 2016

YEESOOKYUNG (Seoul, 1963) – When I Become You Performer: Junghwa LEE / Music: Young Gyu JANG / Costume: Young Seok KIM
Yeesookyung explores the concept of symmetry through a variety of experimental practices that are inspired by Buddhist thought. She paints simultaneously with both hands or uses hypnosis to conduct a spiritual regression session. Her reading of the world is circular, not linear. She speaks of the relationship between the self and others, between perfection and imperfection, the conscious and the unconscious, the real and the virtual. How these opposites relate to each other becomes blurred and diffuse.
Thursday 31st March from 7.15pm to 7.30pm and
Saturday 2nd April from 3pm to 3.15pm
Booth F8

YOUNG IN HONG (Seoul, 1972) – Let Us Dance
Coordinator: Inès Hwahaeng Lee
Young In Hong’s inspiration comes from the demonstrations that took place in Seoul in 2008. Teenagers took part in these in large numbers which torpedoed the accepted traditional image of a passive youth. The artist re-contextualizes the event using a flash mob. Her aim is to reveal the unexpected and the creative energy through this device which, far from obscuring social fractures, sheds greater light upon them and in the process, raises questions about the status of the artist and of the work itself.
