Description de l'exposition:
Lee Ufan’s six new drypoint etchings, created especially for Cahiers d’Art, are on display. Printed on Hahnemüle paper, the small ones are signed and numbered in an edition of 20. The highlight of the exhibition is two 5-meter-long etchings on steel printed on Japan paper. A specially designed fabric box has been created to store the rolled print. Each print is
signed and numbered in an edition of 10.
Passionate about prints, Lee Ufan had for many years wanted to test the limits of horizontality by creating an extremely long etching. Finally, at the studio of master printer Michael Woolworth, he realized this dream. By approaching the enormous proportions and hardness of the steel plates with all his physical strength, the artist created two different works as two ways to explore an infinite trajectory. Together an artistic, physical and technical feat, these impressive etchings are the result of an extraordinary cooperation between the artist and the entire workshop team.
