ART: Jukhee Kwon “Metamorphosis” at Ierimonti Gallery, 55 Delancey Street

Ierimonti, a northern Italian private gallery in LES, always offers a niche take on contemporary art. This quarter they presented “Metamorphosis,” a solo exhibit by Jukhee Kwon. The artist practices physical deconstruction of the book as an object and text as a concept. Reminiscent of Chanel‘s latest set at the Grand Palais in Paris, Ierimonti recreated a labyrinthine forest using Kwon’s book sculptures. Check out the exhibit before it closes on March 23rd.
