ESH Gallery is a contemporary art gallery based in Milan in the lively Design District in the Tortona neighborhood. The gallery focuses its constant artistic research on Italian and international authors who operate on the indistinguishable border between sculpture, contemporary craft and unique piece design. Among the materials used, there are ceramic, glass, metal and other less conventional materials such as paper and Japanese lacquer.
In this context, the desire of ESH Gallery is to guide the public on a path towards a new dialogue between the tradition of decorative arts and contemporary aesthetics. In particular, the concepts of oriental aesthetics are the fulcrum of the gallery’s exhibition program which is constantly enriched thanks to partnerships with international realities. This allows both emerging young artists and masters from the Far East to be known to the Italian public.
For this edition of (un)fair, ESH Gallery presents the works of Kyou-Hong Lee and Kyeok Kim, two of the new exponents of contemporary Korean art. Their intent is to investigate the most recent technical and expressive research between art and traditional craftsmanship. Although distant in technique and aesthetics, the common thread that unites the work of the two artists is the concept of time, considered both as a metamorphic process and a reflection on human experience.
