Inhabiting time with Lee Ufan


The Centre Pompidou-Metz is presenting a retrospective of the work of Lee Ufan, tracing the South Korean artist’s career over more than five decades.

The title of the exhibition, Inhabiting time, is not accidental. Lee Ufan’s work is an invitation to slow down, step outside the world - with its endless influx of imagery and communication - and focus our attention on perception itself. A meditative pathway that may take as its starting-point a single, insignificant detail, or infinity itself.

As Ufan explains, «It’s not that the universe is infinite; it’s that infinity is the universe.»

The exhibition runs until September 30, 2019.
