press release

Opening Friday Dec 12 at 6 pm

Yvon Lambert is pleased to announce the 6th personal exhibition of Koo Jeong-A. In this show entitled “new song, o”, the artist will present a set of 200 new watercolors.

Following the installations of drawings ʻRʼ presented in the Centre Pompidouʼs anniversary exhibition (2007) and ʻOussgoodʼ presented at the Aspen Art Museum and at the Centre International dʼArt et du Paysage de lʼïle de Vassivière (2007), Koo Jeong-A presents a set of 200 watercolors. These works on paper, scattered about the large room of the gallery, describe diverse aspects of the imaginary world of Ousss, created by the artist. Ousss is a dream-like universe with its own recurring characters, geography (ʻLand of Ousssʼ) and definition in the ʻFlammariousssʼ dictionary published by Yvon Lambert.

Koo Jeong-Aʼs work is an “archeology” of diverse materials, images and landscapes, excluded and forgotten in the present-day cultural domain, that we often consider non- artistic. Her work, always carried out in situ, is ephemeral. For each intervention, she seeks to assemble all sorts of objects, videos and drawings that she (re)exposes, sometimes hidden from the spectatorsʼ view. She accentuates and stages the infinitely small, even the invisible. She reveals the beauty and the poetry of the most common objects and moments.
