For this edition of Art Paris art fair 2014, the Galerie Géraldine Banier presents two important works of Jung Min Choi, a Korean artist discovered and supported for several years by the gallery.
"The Gate of Hell", sculpture in plaster and papier-mâché in reference to the motive of the Rodin's door, is held suspended back to the front above a black and disturbing water. Relative to the crisis, to the current hell crossed by the society, Jung Min uses motives recognizable by all to send us back to our human condition.
"The gate of hell" is presented in dialogue with the drawings of the serie "The great days". Snapshots in postcard size, immortalization by the artist of strong moments of the current events, sketched by a fast and sure hand after the reading of his newspaper, he made of this daily testimony his vocation.
Jung Min Choi highlights in the flood of the events, the depression, the enjoyment, and what is forgettable and what is memorable.
