Minjung Kim Regeneration

Apr 26 — May 25, 2024 | Paris, Matignon

Opening on Friday, April 26th, 2024 from 6 to 8 pm

Almine Rech Paris is pleased to announce Regeneration, Minjung Kim's first solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from April 26 to May 25, 2024.

Minjung Kim’s time in her studio is led by the tenants of experimentation and reaction. Over the course of close to 40 years engaged as an artist, Kim’s practice has consistently fed itself inherently. Each body of work responds to the one that came before it in a slight, but steady ascent toward newness.

With Regeneration, Kim upholds this premise with a continuation of ongoing bodies of work as well as a new series born out of recent discoveries in the studio, from which the exhibition receives its title. Aptly produced ahead of the shift in seasons from winter to spring, the works spawn from leftover paper that Kim brought into contact with leftover watercolor. The resulting pink hues that spread across the paper’s surface glow with new life as though born from the beauty of discovery. In Regeneration, a duality of old and new, present in Kim’s entire practice, comes to the forefront and introduces an endless score of philosophical underpinnings.
