Abstraction Calligraphique : Georges Noël, Henri Michaux, Ung-no Lee

Lee Ungno Museum, Daejeon, Corée du Sud04/10/2016 - 18/12/2016

Lee Ungno and Calligraphic Abstraction in Europe> explores the calligraphic abstract style of Lee Ungno’s paintings within the context of Post-war Europe and modernist abstract painting. Previously in 2014, we brought together the works of Lee Ungno, Zao Wu-ki, Pierre Soulages, and Hans Hartung to examine the brushworks of their paintings, which were analogous to calligraphic strokes. In continuation of that, this exhibition links East Asian calligraphy and modernist abstract painting in the art of Lee Ungno, Georges Noël, and Henri Michaux. These three artists all exhibited at the Galerie Facchetti during the 1950s and the ‘60s and individually developed their calligraphic abstract styles by combining written characters with pictorial signs, or synchronizing the act of writing with the act of drawing.
