KUKJE GALLERY

Since opening in 1982, the Kukje Gallery has been at the forefront in representing the most current and significant tendencies in Korean and international contemporary art. The gallery has established itself as a leading venue for showing works by major international figures such as Alexander Calder, Joseph Beuys, Eva Hesse, Louise Bourgeois, Ghada Amer, Candida Höfer and Bill Viola. The exhibitions provide the rare opportunity for Korean art audiences to view the works of world-renowned contemporary artists without going abroad.

Kukje Gallery also plays an important role in promoting Korean artists. The gallery has an unmatched reputation for introducing such artists as Lee Bul, Chun Kwang-Young and Cho Duck-Hyun to domestic and international audiences through its exhibition program and its participation in art fairs and exhibitions worldwide. Many of the Korean artists who have shown with the gallery have gone on to participate in exhibitions at the Venice Biennale, Lyon Biennale and Kwangju Biennale as well as at major international art museums.

The exhibition space in the new building is ample ... [ Read all ]

Forthcoming Exhibitions

Sunok U, “Micro Home”, Nov. 23-Dec. 23, 2006

Born in 1958 in Incheon, U Sunok graduated from Duesseldorf Kunstakademie, Germany after she earned BFA & MFA in Painting at Ewha Womans University in Seoul. She met her lifelong teacher Prof. Uecker in Duesseldorf, whose humanity and philosophy in art influenced the artist. In addition, Conceptual art of Germany intensely fascinated the artist, forming her own artistic philosophy through and around it.

For the past 15 years, the artist has been dealing with the following themes: space, existence, and absence, which are directly related to her meditative life. As such, her works transmit (Korean) beauty of emptiness and the elements of German Conceptual art. She often includes poetical writings with paintings and installation pieces and final pieces display her focus on emptiness and simplicity.

In this exhibition, the artist will present works from a video documentation to an installation work titled microhome, which was exhibited in the Biennale of Sydney this year.
