Born April 20, 1958, in Daegu, South Korea, Moon-Pil Shim lives and works in the Yvelines, near Paris.

For his third solo exhibition at the Lee-Bauwens gallery, the artist deepens his exploration of the in-between. The title of the exhibition, Game of lines, sums up the work of the artist who has developed his own grammar, with works where the lines, spaced or close together, cut out and modulate the colored areas, introducing rhythm into the relationships of colors and spaces.

Moon-Pil Shim develops the alternation between transparency, sharpness and solid colors on the plexiglass material on the one hand and on the other hand the milky presence, the imprecise depth where the reflection of the color pulls the perception towards a recessed space. Also, but without systematism, the artist explores the relationships of the motif to its framing by playing on the hanging with a search for balance in imbalance.

Moon-Pil Shim, invites us in this exhibition to take part in another world, to make our gaze more mobile and to look deep, beyond the visible.

Art'Loft, Lee-Bauwens gallery, is an art gallery where artworks are showcased in a living space. When you step into this old printing house in Brussels, you are walk- ing into a loft space where art is not only exhibited but also shared. This excep- tional configuration allows visitors to discover the works in a living interior while the artists have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a multi-purpose place that focuses on their art. Founded in december 2012 by Min Young Lee and Gil Bauwens, the gallery's goal is to reveal and promote artists who are mostly coming from the Korean art scene, but also to show European artists works in Korea, through exhibitions or art events. As a curator, Min Young Lee works closely with art institutions and museums and organizes exhibitions such as TEAF 2014 (Taehwa River Eco Art Festival) in Ulsan, 3rd Identiy Hybrid 2010 in Jeju Museum of Contemporary Art, Boarding Bridge 2009 in Seoul Kring Kumho Museum, Dissipation and Return 2009 in Seoul Metro Museum, or Age of Fragrance 2008 in Dae-Jeon Asia Museum. Recently, the gallery collaborated with Asad Raza for the first personal exhibition organized by the Boghossian Foundation at the prestigious Villa Empain. An event entirely dedicated to the Korean artist Chun Kwang Young, performed in parallel with the exhibition Chaotic Harmony organized at the gallery. In 2019, as curator with Pooluna Chung (Laurence Geoffrey’s, Ltd.) and Ramona Van Gansbeke (GLUON), Min Young Lee organizes the exhibition : Brussels in SongEun: imagining cities beyond 2.0 technology, during the visit of the King of Belgians in Seoul. With artists as Je Baak, Younes Baba-Ali, Pierre Jean Giloux, LAb[au], LarbitsSisters, Félix Luque Sánchez, AnneMarie Maes, Mioon, Hye Min Park, Beat Streuli, Thomas Willemen, Ji Hye Yeom Today, the gallery represents a group of about fifteen international artists consti- tuting a broad creative panorama ranging from sculpture to painting and associating them with new media and installation.
