Axel Vervoordt Gallery

Chung Chang-Sup

Feb 6 – May 8

Meditation 91088 by Chung Chang-sup, 1991.

A solo exhibition of Chung Chang-Sup (1927-2011), one of the most prominent artists associated with the Korean movement dansaekhwa (“single-colour painting”). The exhibition features works from the artist’s 40-year quest to master his technique with tak, a natural material made from the inner bark of the mulberry, a tree native to Korea. Works from Chung’s three most important series, ReturnTak and Meditation, are juxtaposed throughout.
展覽為丁昌燮(1927-2011年)的個展,他是韓國單色畫 運動的代表人物之一。展覽展出藝術家40年來掌握運用韓紙技術的作品,韓紙是一種天然材料,由韓國獨有的桑樹內皮製成。作品來自藝術家三個最重要的系列《回歸》、《韓紙》和《冥想》,在整個展覽中並置排列。

As a strong supporter of Zero and Gutai art movements from its inception, the gallery’s vision has gradually evolved into contemporary art with a special interest in the concept of the void, the process of the creation and in the questioning of the experience of space and time.

In May 2014, Axel Vervoordt Gallery expanded to Hong Kong and opened its first overseas exhibition venue in the city’s central district. El Anatsui created new work for this occasion. By having a physical presence in Hong Kong, Axel Vervoordt Gallery will continue to bridge artistic expressions between the East and the West.
