Sangchul Choi: A Thousand Traces

25 September - 28 November 2020

A Thousand Traces, opening September 25, 2020 at AV Modern & Contemporary retraces the evolution of South-Korean painter Choi Sangchul's quests for the ultimate "nature painting". Starting from the 1970's, the works on view take the visitor through five decades of experimentations and research in minimal abstraction ending with Choi's strikingly visionary recent series of works "Mumool" (state of nothingness).

 

Proning meditation, isolation and immersion in nature to the point of fusion Choi's practice resonates with our shared confined experience like a durable way of life in a plagued world, and we may ask ourselves: does artist Choi Sangchul detain the cure ?
