Last month Roland formed a partnership with START Art Fair in compliment to the Korean Eye 2020 exhibition, co-curating a ground floor space at London's Saatchi Gallery to feature artworks by two female Korean artists; Seoul-based Hyojin Park and London-Seoul based Meekyoung Shin.
Roland is delighted that following START the works are now travelling to his flagship boutique at 8 Carlos Place in Mayfair for an extended pop-up exhibition for members of the public until 7th November 2019.
The artworks are a striking contrast to the surroundings and other artworks that inhabit the boutique, capturing Roland’s perpetual fascination with clash and contrast.
Hyojin Park’s sculptures explore ideas of happiness and paradise captures through works that resemble a sad monster, with god-like figures supporting splendid flowers in full bloom as a product of higher desire. The sculptures by Meekyoung Shin probe the mis- and re-translations that often emerge when objects of distinct cultural and historical specificity city are dislocated from their origins. Made from soap, her work replicates artefacts and works of art, from Asian porcelain vases to Greek and Roman sculptures.
With over 20 years in luxury fashion and an international reputation, Roland Mouret has brought a unique approach to draping fabric creating silhouettes that celebrate the female form – a style that has made him one of the best-loved names in the industry.
On Tuesday 29th October, Roland Mouret also invites you to join a private view with artists Hyojin Park and Meekyoung Shin in attendance, please refer to the below evite.
