Alllooksame ?
Curatorial statment of Francesco Bonami

NOTE : HS became interested in Asian Art later in his career and presented several artists in biannual of Lyon (97) and Venice (99, 01). As Haeju and Yuka are South Korean and Japanese, they knew the artists presented in these shows haven’t received exposure in the European market before but were already established with representation in Asia.

As a base of discussion for our group, we intend to confront the Western view towards Asian culture, hence the socio and politically incorrect implications of title alllooksame ?.
