Koo Jeong-a (The Studio)

On the 15th of February 2003, the Yvon Lambert Gallery launches its new show- room after two months of renovations and enlargerments. This will
be followed by the opening of a brand new space in New York next spring.

On the same night a large solo exhibition of recent works by Douglas
Gordon will open. This will be the artist’s third exhibition at
the gallery. It is almost three years to the day since the important
retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Paris. With his
films, his sonorous installations, his photographs and his wall texts,
he explores the experience of memory by appropriating images from popular
culture (television, music, cinema, etc). These he changes and shows in
a different context, restoring some fragments of his life by a huge
process of aural and visual collages.

After the prominent solo exhibition What I Have Done at the
Hayward Gallery, London, (1st November-5th January 2003), Douglas Gordon will
participate among others at the reopening exhibition of the Museum of
Eindhoven in January 2003.

To start its new monthly programme, The Studio invites the Korean artist
Koo Jeong-a to show a video installation Fictive Love. Far away
from the notion of unique and precious works of art, her work is made of little
things. Every day objects, assembled in a way that reveals their secret
dimension. In November 2003, Koo Jeong-a will have a show in Seoul at
the Art Sonje.

Kay Pallister, curator for the next Venice Biennale, is invited to
organise the first exhibition in the Project Room of the Yvon Lambert
Gallery. She will chose works by young Scottish artists.

In the centre of The Studio, a space will be entirely assigned to a
bookshop specialising in contemporary art, including Yvon Lambert

These changes show again Yvon Lambert’s dedication to contemporary
art and his wish to make his gallery, above all, a place for research and
the meeting of minds.
