Aubade III
From 20/10/2015 to 09/01/2016

As part of France-Korea Year, the Palais de Tokyo, in collaboration with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) of Korea, is presenting an installation by Lee Bul (born in 1964, based in Seoul) entitled Aubade III. Inspirée de l’architecture et des utopies modernes du début du 20ème siècle, cette structure métallique met en scène la crise entre l’homme et la société ultra technologique.

Curators : Khairuddin Hori et KIM Hyoungmi
