Mari Kim’s solo exhibition ‘La Vie Parisienne’

2You might want to make a quick visit near Cheongdam’s Dosan Park, to Gallery 0914. With the 130 Year Friendship Korea-France event ending, Mari Kim’s solo exhibition ‘La Vie Parisienne’ will be opening.

The title of the exhibition, ‘La Vie Parisienne’, which means the life of Parisian, is based on the French weekly magazine, which introduced French culture and arts in 1863. Marie Kim was inspired by the pride of her native culture and art through this weekly magazine and prepared a new work for this exhibition.

The 13 new graphic art pieces which have been specially created for this exhibition portray historic French characters in the artist’s iconic ‘EYEDOLL’ method, Coco Chanel, Jon of Arc, Edith Piaf and Marie Antoinette among others seem quirky and rather approachable. Kim mentioned that such style evolved from her love of comics reflected in the big glossy eyes in her caricatures.

Marion Kim’s ‘La Vie Parisienne’ will be on display from 26th of December until February 5th, 2017. If you are curious about the story of the artist Marion Kim created and the idol, let’s not worry, but let’s go to the exhibition hall.
