Exhibition Christian Boltanski 4.4 - Korean CultureExhibition  «Lee Ufan and His Friends III (Christian Boltanski : 4.4)»

As the third exhibition of the series Lee Ufan and His Friends, the Busan Museum of Art hosts “Christian Boltanski: 4.4” This is the artist’s largest retrospective held in Korea since a 1997 solo exhibition at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, as well as his first posthumous exhibition. The title of the exhibition, 4.4, refers to 1944, the year he was born. The artist once said that it is interesting that the number 4 symbolizes death in Korea since its pronunciation “sa (사, 死)” is identical to that of a Chinese character meaning death (“sa”: 사, 死). During the preparation of the exhibition, the artist was aware that he did not have many remaining days to live. He deliberately chose this title, because he thought that this moment to him was like “the last stage of life,” if life is divided into 4 stages. In addition, the period after the number “4” is also a signifier symbolizing the end of the artist’s life.
