Picasso & Cusism

Julien Previeux solo exhibition
Julien Previeux solo exhibition is held at the Art Sonje Center, Seoul from 22 November 2018 to 20 January 2019. The artist is displaying his recent works themed on ‘movements of future’ created based on research and collecting. He recorded and analyzed the movements of body from the 19th century to industrialization and technological advancement. <Patterns of Life> summons these movements through dancers and <What Shall We Do Next?> focused on patented finger movements on smartphones; through this the artist unveils the ironic co-relations between ‘private body movements’ and ‘technology, private assets and non-paid labor’. Previeux uses various media to express these: installations, drawings and video images. He won the Marcel Duchamp (awards) in 2014, and held solo exhibitions at Marseille Museum of Contemporary Art in 2018, Toronto Blackwood Gallery in 2017 and Centre Georges Pompidou in 2014. In 2016, he published <Lettre de non motivation>: instead of sending application form for a job, he had sent 1,000 letters of refusal form with reason why he refuses entering the company; he gathered the letters he sent and the letters he received for the book.
