The year Korea in France, which was launched in September, comes to commemorate 130th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two, celebrated with events that showcase both economic and cultural exchanges. Bringing the allure of art and design to Paris, Laffanour Galerie Downtown/Paris, has opened an exhibition entitled “Eternity & Instant: Choi Byung Hoon,” celebrating the newest work of the Seoul-based artist, who is known for his abstract furniture and objects, rooted in his aesthetic and philosophical loam. His objects tend to challenge weightlessness, where wood and stone are emancipated from the laws of gravity in order to focus on the laws of grace. Laffanour who was the first to show Hoon’s work outside of Korea, representing the artist for twenty years, has transformed the gallery into an Asian garden, where the objects are shown in the most authentic and inspiring mode.
