In Conversation: Part II: Minyoung Choi and Mircea Teleagă

14 - 18 April 2021
Overview

Having met in 2015 during their Masters in Painting at the Slade School of Fine Art, Minyoung Choi and Mircea Teleagă continue to influence one another. The artists now share a studio together in East London, and while their painting practices differ in content, a similar palette and shared tendency to look to memory and nostalgia found in places, objects and traditions can be drawn between the two, often transpiring by way of repeated motifs. During what were supposed to be individual studio visits, bo.lee founder Jemma Hickman found herself distracted by the paintings on the other side of the room, and quickly, the exhibition that we are now proud to introduce began to curate itself.
