The exhibition presents a dialogue between the practice of Danh Vo, the works of Park Seo-Bo (1931), considered the father of the "Dansaekhwa" movement, and the acclaimed American sculptor, architect, designer and set designer Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988).
The exhibition project thoroughly embraces the space of the historic building once inhabited by the noble Venetian family Querini who lived there for generations while accumulating collections of objects, books and, above all, works of art that were left as a legacy to the city with the establishment of the foundation in 1869.
Known for his sensitivity to space and time, and for his personal and collective history, Vo has been invited to navigate with his own vision in the labyrinthine structure of the Foundation, which includes ancient rooms flanked by contemporary elements, in a continuous journey through the centuries.
Describing it as a "great sculpture" that can be encountered and staged again, the artist will emerge around the Querini palace by creating delicate interventions with Akari lamps by Noguchi hanging next to his own works, some of which are created in his studio and on his farm in Güldenhof, north of Berlin.
There are also works from Park's famous "Écriture" series, with paintings inextricably linked to the notions of time, space and matter.
