Hanji House由博埃里建筑设计事务所设计,是位于威尼斯Contarini Polignac宫的委托项目。该项目与 Chun Kwang Young: Times Reimagined 展览合作,展出了由韩国艺术家Chun Kwang Young 创作的40件大型桑纸浮雕、雕塑及装置作品。

Designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti, the Hanji House is a site-specific commissioned pavilion made in dialogue with the exhibition Chun Kwang Young: Times Reimagined – that features 40 large-scale mulberry-paper reliefs, sculptures and installations created by the Korean artist Chun Kwang Young, at the Palazzo Contarini Polignac, in Venice.

“Hanji” is the name given to a traditional Korean paper made technique deriving from mulberry, also known as the “thousand years paper” due to its great resistance. It is also Chun’s prime tool of creation, which he uses to shape metamorphotic creatures reminiscent of living beings or spectacular scenes with historical and cultural symbolism.

该装置位于Palazzo Contarini Polignac 的花园中,俯瞰威尼斯大运河,Hanji House是一座木质装置,是“纸树建筑”的实用模型,远看就像一盏灯笼。设计灵感来自于以无数种方式折叠纸的有趣而又引人深思的实践:除了基于简单几何模块化的传统韩国和东亚房屋形态外,这种形状让人想起古代东亚时期的折纸和七巧板实践。该装置是由一个简单的体积组合构成的:平行六面体顶部的四个金字塔,在中心构成了一个平坦规则的菱形表面。

Installed in the Palazzo’s gardens, overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice, the Hanji House is a wooden pavilion, a practical model of ‘paper-tree architecture’ and it looks as a lantern from a distance. The design is inspired by the playful and yet meditative practice of folding paper in an infinite number of ways: the shape recalls ancient East Asian practices of paper-folding and tangram, besides the traditional Korean and East Asian houses, based on simple geometric modularity. It is made by a simple combination of volumes: four pyramids on the top of a parallelepiped, defining a planar surface shaped as a regular rhombus in the middle.

从外部看,Hanji house既珍贵又有趣。它是一座灯塔,照亮了它所在的辉煌的文艺复兴时期建筑和围绕它进行创作的艺术作品。

在 Hanji House 内,多媒体艺术家Calvin J. Lee正在创作一个实时互动艺术装置。 Lee将艺术家Chun Kwang Young创作的三角形韩纸包装通过虚拟形式展示了出来。Hanji House 内部宁静的环境也为参观者提供了一个沉浸式的空间,让参观者可以放松下来,去探索内心的自我,就像在艺术家的作品内部漫步一样。

From the outside, the envelope gives the Hanji House the appearance of a precious and at the same time playful object, a lighthouse to illuminate both the splendid Renaissance architecture in which it is located and the works of art that surround it.

Inside the Hanji House, a real-time interactive art installation is being developed by media artist Calvin J. Lee. Lee transformed triangular hanji packages created by artist Chun Kwang Young into virtual form. The tranquil environment inside Hanji House offers an immersive space for visitors to unwind and explore their inner selves as if walking through the interior of Chun’s works.

艺术家Chun Kwan Young以生物之间的相互联系及其关系的社会生态价值为主题工作了 30 年。在生态学中,相互联系是所有生物繁衍和生存的绝对因素,也是在任何不利条件下确保生物多样性和增强可持续性的必要条件。

韩纸之家将于 2022 年 4 月 23 日至 11 月 27 日对公众开放。

Chun Kwan Young has been working for 30 years under the theme of the interconnectedness between living beings and the socio-ecological values of their relationships. In ecology, interconnectedness is an absolute factor for the reproduction and survival of all living things, as well as an essential for ensuring biodiversity and enhancing sustainability in any adverse conditions.

The Hanji House will be open to the public from April 23 to 27 November 2022.
