Press Release of Louma Salamé, Curator
From the earliest times to the present day, water has always been a source of fascination and inspiration due to its vital and spiritual dimension. Indeed, the relationship between living beings and the world is formed by water. It is the primordial matrix, a prerequisite for life.
The Boghossian Foundation presents the exhibition Water, a poetic and emotional exploration into the oeuvre of South Korean artist Kim TschangYeul, renowned for his depictions of water droplets. The exhibition tackles the various manifestations of water through fifty contemporary artworks and site-

Set in the breath-
Building a program around awakening the senses, constructing a relationship that is both aesthetic, cerebral, sensory, situationist, and relational with works of art and environments is at the heart of the artistic programming of the Boghossian Foundation.
With the intention of restoring intimacy to the heart of the visit, providing visitors with the opportunity to interact with the artworks and feel at home at Villa Empain, the exhibition invites the public to a memorable sensory experience. An approach that lies at the core of the Foundation's actions, contributing to the creation of emotional and sensory memories.
In collaboration with public and private partners, both in Belgium and around the world, the exhibition aims to uphold the idea that water is like light, the very essence of what distances us from darkness.
