Choi and Lager

This post is marginally outside the normal scope of LKL’s exhibition notices. But I’m posting it in the hope that I can persuade Jari to bring Jinyoung’s work to Union Gallery’s London space in Teesdale Street, E2. It’s a while since he did so and I’m suffering withdrawal symptoms. Yu Jinyoung: the LIFE 18 May […]
