Yun Hyong-keun

London  25 October - 24 November 2018
Threatened with execution as a student in the 1950s and imprisoned while employed as a teacher in the 1970s, Yun developed an aesthetic that was capable of transcending the traumatic events he had suffered as a younger man.

Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present a survey of paintings and works on paper by Yun Hyong-keun. The Korean artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery examines the connection between his painting and drawing practices across the full breadth of a career profoundly connected with the history and culture of his native country. Yun is currently the subject of a retrospective at The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Seoul, Korea, the first major solo exhibition of the artist at a national institution in Korea.
