Lee Bae: Paradigm of Charcoal

Perrotin Hong Kong is pleased to present “Paradigm of Charcoal,” a solo exhibition from Korean artist Lee Bae on view through September 11.

August 7, 2021 - September 11, 2021

Perrotin Hong Kong is pleased to present “Paradigm of Charcoal,” a solo exhibition from Korean artist Lee Bae on view through September 11. The show looks at the artist’s decades-long relationship with charcoal as the artistic material in his work. “Paradigm of Charcoal” celebrates his experimental and contemporary approach to the monochromatic choice.

Lee has been using charcoal rather than traditional mediums like paint in his artistic practice since his move to Paris at the end of 1989. This ubiquitous material is also deeply rooted in Korean culture which allows Lee to reconnect with his heritage. In Korean folk culture, charcoal is believed to possess the power to keep out evil forces and is sometimes offered as a deity gift in household rituals. The cultural connection inevitably led Lee to explore peace, and continued to create art that symbolized his early days living in Paris and his heritage.
