Park Eun Sun exhibition in Florence

Korean artist Park Eun Sun, who lives in Pietrasanta, is exhibiting in Florence this summer with a range of contemporary works in various iconic places throughout the city.

 

Park-Eun-Sun

 

The sculptures by Park Eun Sun, who has previously exhibited in various Italian landmarks and been awarded for spreading Korean culture abroad, merge notions of the colourful East and the elegance of Italian style. Columns, spheres and cubes carved out of striped marble strive to emphasize the Romanesque style that lives on in Tuscany today, as well as representing the eastern concept of perfect balance. Each work contains a fracture in one way or another, symbolizing thoughts, neurosis, fears and anger, although the sculptures continue to stand strong.

 

On show until September 18 and free of charge, the artworks can be found in locations including piazza Pitti, the courtyard of Palazzo Vecchio and the Basilica of San Miniato, as well as the three attention-grabbing columns at Piazzale Michelangelo. Further works have been installed in the city’s rose gardens and at the airport.

 

The exhibition has been organized by Studio Copernico in partnership with the City of Florence and is part of the Estate Fiorentina events calendar.
