Supported by the Boghossian Foundation, the exhibition Chun Kwang Young: Times Reimagined presents the aesthetics of the Korean artist at the Palazzo Contarini Polignac during the 59th Biennale of Venice. The exhibition is curated by Yongwoo Lee, and includes 40 large-scale mulberry-paper reliefs, sculptures, and installations by Chun.

In dialogue with Chun Kwang Young’s works, the Italian architect Stefano Boeri presents the Hanji House as a site-specific commissioned architecture of this project. This foldable architectural structure was built with a timber and textile membrane on soil as a practical model of ‘paper-tree architecture’, which can be viewed as a light box from a distance. The outdoor self-standing object’s design is inspired by playful and yet meditative practice of folding the paper – in an infinite number of ways.
