at Sokyo Lisbon Gallery

Sokyo Lisbon is delighted to present Yoon Heechang's first ever solo presentation in Europe. Rivers is a two-part exhibition introducing the artist’s seminal sand river paintings.

Paying particular attention to the environment that surrounds us – both physical and metaphysical – his works are deeply connected to landscape: “representing the land by the land itself”.

The exhibition Rivers introduces his work through a series of paintings made with sand collected along the Kamogawa River and the Seine, including an eight-minute video accompanying the artist work process between the Kamogawa's riverbed environs Kyoto and at the studio at Tama Art University in Tokyo.
