Ha Chong-Hyun

Cardi Gallery, Corso di Porta Nuova 38, Milan, Italy

On the occasion of his solo show at Cardi Gallery, the Korean artist presents works from the “Conjunction” series, which he realized between 1972 and 2019.

Ha Chong-Hyun is one of the most important figures in the history of post-war art, a prominent figure in the Dansaekhwa Korean art movement. Combining Eastern and Western pictorial traditions and challenging the strict demarcation between sculpture, painting, and performance, Ha Chong-Hyun contributed to redefine the language of painting.

In 1974 the artist began to focus on the materiality of painting and to use the canvas not only as a simple support: in the “Conjunction series”, according to which the purity of the pictorial medium and the physicality of the artist merge, Ha Chong-Hyun uses tools to push the oil color, monochrome, from the back of the rough canvas until it is filtered and emerges through the surface.
