Spring Exhibition at the Maeght Foundation – St. Paul: Lee Bae
In the spring, from March 24 to June 17, the Korean artist Lee Bae will take over the spaces of the Maeght Foundation to present his paintings, sculptures and installations specially created for the occasion. This exhibition highlights a body of work built around very subtle blends coming from Western abstract art such as Arte Povera and the codes and traditional artistic practices of Korean culture. With Lee Bae, the idea of nature is present through fire and charcoal but also through the symbolic and intangible black. The artist likes to emphasize that the burned wood and coal he uses come from the human hand and its ability to transform this natural material…. 20 km away from the hotel – 30’ by car.
