Our show gives you the chance to discover Korean art from A to Z”, explains Guillaume Piens, the fair’s creative director, before adding: “When you travel around South East Asia, you understand the impact of the Korean wave.” Within just thirty years, South Korea has grown into the world’s fifteenth biggest economy, and Art Paris Art Fair is devoting 20% of its fair to the country, showcasing 77 artists and eight national galleries, seven of which are visiting the fair for the first time. Inside the fair itself, each gallery has its own outlook, making for an exceptional display. RX and Françoise Livinec will be presenting major Dansaekhwa artists, including Lee Bae. The 313 Art Project, which has been present at Art Paris Art Fair for several years, and the Rabouan Moussion gallery, will be putting the spotlight on the ultra-famous Lee Ufan, whose work has been shown at Versailles. Over at the SoSo Gallery, visitors can explore the abstract blue paintings of Yun Soo Kim, a young woman who captures deserts and gusts of wind in a single brush stroke, while pieces by Ung-no Lee will be on show at the Thessa Herold gallery. This is the first time a South Asian country has had such a strong impact on an art fair.
