The catalogue reproduces the sculptures of the great Korean artist, exposed during summer 2016 in six emblematic spots in Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, the Garden of Roses located nearby, the parvis of the Church of San Miniato al Monte, Piazza Pitti, Palazzo Vecchio and the airport “Amerigo Vespucci”. His works, symbols of essentiality and elegance, are a synthesis of the oriental style and the Italian chromatic and material tradition. As Luciano Caprile writes “Park reaches his goals with an extraordinary efficacy. The narrative expedients used by the artist are constantly making us identify in his works. In a world globalised in terms of thoughts and attitudes, it is essential to enjoy the concrete artistic testament of an author who is able to smartly combine some expressions of the oriental culture and the Western mindset".
Presentations by Dario Nardella and Yong-Joon Lee. Texts of Luciano Caprile, Sergio Risaliti.
