Pine Tree and Wind of Tahit: Bae Bien-U Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza,
Madrid, ES Spain
The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum is taking part in the 9th edition of
PhotoEspaña (the International Festival of Photography and the Visual Arts) with an exhibition devoted to the photographic
series Pine Tree and Wind of Tahiti, by the Korean Bae Bien-U. The exotic natural world of the Far East enters the Museum
with 14 large-scale photographs by one of the leading names among avant-garde Korean artists, Bae Bien-U (born Yosu, South
Korea, 1950). The series Pine Tree brings together works executed in the early 1990s, in which the artist transforms forests
into living creatures that unite earth and sky or uses them to represent individuals or social groups. In contrast to the
mystical effect created by the ethereal light in these black and white images, the series Wind of Tahiti reveals Bae Bien-U’s
skill in the use of colour which he acquired during his stay in Tahiti in 2002 to 2003. - Read Indepth Article at http://www.absolutearts.com
