In Tokyo, In Situ-1, Espace Louis Vuitton: Sept 13, 2014-January 4th, 2015
A lovely evening last Friday at Espace Louis Vuitton to attend a conversation between the artist Min-Jeong Seo and art critic Aomi Okabe on the project where the artist has been in a residency at the Espace/Louis Vuitton, In Situ-1, in Tokyo, from September to November 2015 (conversation in japanese, with live german translation)
Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo and Munich launch the experience Of In-Situ in September 2014 by welcoming South Korean artist Min-Jeong Seo and Malaysian artist Simryn Gill, respectively.
In Tokyo, In Situ/Espace Louis Vuitton Min-Jeong Seo “opens the door to her ‘studio’ for about four months to share her experience of working in situ with the audience and show the progress of her work. She establishes a bold dialogue between creation and destruction with poetic and highly symbolic installations. By sculpting, breaking and scraping fragile materials such as polystyrene or porcelain, the artist evokes fragility and uncertainty of life, and notions of instant and time.”

Min-Jeong also talked about her previous work ‘Explosion”
as well as the black/white birds made out of porcelain.
