Yun Hyong-keun: A retrospective

Palazzo Fortuny, Campo San Beneto, 3780, San Marco, Venice, Italy

In collaboration with National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Seoul, Palazzo Fortuny presents Yun Hyong-keun‘s first retrospective in Europe. Marked by his country’s troubled history, Yun was one of the most important post-World War II Korean artists. He was repeatedly imprisoned for his freedom of expression. In 1950, he miraculously escaped a group execution by firing squad as one of the only 5 survivors out of forty companions.

Yun’s artistic style developed and became remarkable in the first half of the 1970s with his use of the very dark shade of pigment and a combination of ultramarine blue and burnt umber, spreading with a large brush in highly diluted successive layers that gradually impregnated the raw canvas, which is in particular harmony with the land and water of Venice.
