Van Abbemuseum presents Jewyo Rhii Walls to Talk to

Van Abbemuseum presents Jewyo Rhii Walls to Talk to on view 26 January–12 May 2013.

The solo exhibition Walls to Talk to is the first time a European audience will have an extensive introduction to the practice of Jewyo Rhii. It presents a selection of recent work, alongside a series of site-specific pieces produced during a four-month stay in Eindhoven. Rhii is an artist who has developed a body of work that stems from her sensitive, personal and almost subliminal responses to her immediate environments. Born in Korea, she has displaced herself many times in the last ten years, including periods in Western Europe and the USA. These conditions of constant movement form one of the bases of her work.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue published by Koenig Books, London. Following its presentation at the Van Abbemuseum, the exhibition will travel to MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main, and Artsonje Center, Seoul.

The exhibition started on 26 January 2013 and builds up to the official opening on 23 February.

Curators of Jewyo Rhii – Walls to Talk to, Nick Aikens and Charles Esche
