TRAVERSEE    Paik Hae Young Gallery  2015  -  Villa des Arts  2016

Traversée  is a series of drawings on hanji paper inspired to Elodie Dornand by the book « Sketches of Korea » about Korean culture that she just published with Benjamin Joinau.

To celebrate the launching of the book, Elodie extracted drawings from it to deliver a more personal vision of Korea replaced in a humorous context.

These drawings play on contrasts: black and white, I and the other, interior and exterior, shadow and light… They are both poetic and idiotic, childish and intended for adults only, unique and indefinitely reproducible…Elodie delivers a jubilatory portrait of the modern Korean society with her sharp humour.
