Park Eun Sun, one of Korea’s most famous artists – and a sculptor who has lived and worked in Pietrasanta for decades – exhibits “Innesti e Connessioni” (Inserts and Connections.) a major one-person exhibition at the Mercati di Traiano, at the Museo dei Fori Imperiali, in Rome.
The exhibition, curated by Gabriele Simonini, features 13 monumental works by Sun; it opened last week – and continues until the 30th of November, 2014.
The exhibition takes place in the Imperial Forum of Rome, on the occasion of the 130th anniversary of bilateral relations between Italy and South Korea – which were signed in 1884 by the Kingdom of Joseon, and the Kingdom of Italy. Some of the sculptures have been specifically produced, site-specific, for the exhibition – including the 7-meter tall “Accrescimento – colonna infinita III” (pictured above).
“My sculptures have to integrate themselves with respect” states the artist, “in this majestic context, echoing and underlining the beauty of the spatial and architectonic rhythm of the space. which unfold vertically and horizontally. Mine is like an offering to this magnificent and powerful stage.”

The catalog of the exhibition is published by Silvana Editoriale, with a text by Gabriele Simonini, and an interview with the artist by Luciano Caprile.
