Curated by Daehyung LeeCounterbalance: The Stone and the Mountain” is a group show featuring artists Lee Wan and Cody Choi, and the photographic archive of Mr. K, an anonymous journalist from Korea who lived through nearly a century of Korea’s history. In an email to ArtAsiaPacific, Lee described his curatorial concept for the Pavilion as “presenting semi-fictive worlds that reinvent reality and engage our imagination, trigger our empathy, and pique our curiosity through understated means that overall emphasize our human nature and psychological complexity.”
