|Comme Une Foret De Fil
April 24 — June 30, 2008
Commissaires Gallery, Montreal
|Beginning April 25, commissaires presents "Comme une foret de fil" ("Like a forest of wire"), an exhibit of star designer Kwangho Lee's lighting-installations
For the very first time outside South Korea. Made of electric wire knitted and shaped by Lee, in lengths reaching more than 100 meters, these lamps are possessed of a rare poetry and, in the end, of great simplicity -
Enthusiastic explorations of how to make extraordinary things out of an everyday material. They are also part of a design trend in which the focus returns to a production process emphasizing the handcrafted.
