Recently launched on a Venetian waterfront, this project is a dialogue between Italian architect Stefano Boeri and Korean artist Kwang Yong Chan< /p>April 24, 2022
Venice is hosting an exhibition by renowned Korean artist Kwang Young Chun, Times Reimagined, featuring 40 spatial works. In dialogue with her, the Stefano Boeri Architetti bureau built a pavilion on the bank of the canal – a small white building with a gabled roof, called the Khanji Pavilion. “Hanji” is the name of a traditional Korean paper-making technique. Kwan Yong Chan often uses such paper in his work, to whose work the project of Stefan Boeri refers. “/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/47bbe427bf0446a9726787d3f6da9f67.jpg” width=”728″ height=”485″ class=”lazy-image__image _align-center” data-v-64ca9b5a=”1″ alt=””Paper “Pavilion in Venice designed by Stefano Boeri” />
The Hangji Pavilion is a wooden building resembling a folded paper sheet (as in origami). Inside the pavilion is an interactive art installation created by media artist Calvin J. Lee. It also cites the work of Kwan Yong Chan.
