Seundja Rhee: Towards the Antipodes

The exhibition is organized in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Rhee Seundja.

Arte Nova, Campo San Lorenzo, Castello 5063, 30122 Venezia VE

Rhee is widely recognized as the only woman artist of her generation who has spearheaded Korean abstract art, alongside her contemporaries Kim Whanki and Yoo Youngkuk.

Across six decades of her prolific practice, Rhee took to the East Asian theory of yin and yang and the five elements that make up the universe (Eumyangohaeng) as her conceptual bedrock.

Such influences are demonstrated through her amalgamation of Eastern and Western artistic and cultural contexts after emigrating to France in 1951, which became her second home where she learned the canons of Western painting, while simultaneously fusing her academic studies with her unique philosophical sensibilities.
