The 15th edition of the Biennale de Lyon has named the artists participating in the event of this year, including three Korean artists Mire Lee, Yona Lee, and Minouk Lim. With a french title “Là où les eaux se mêlent,” which means “Where water comes together with other water” in English, Biennale de Lyon will be held at the new location, Les Usines Fagor as well as at its usual location, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon under the direction of Isabelle Bertolotti and the curatorial department of the Palais de Tokyo. The invited artists will present new site-specific works related to the architecture of the location, in the context of socioeconomic legacy. As the curatorial team mentioned in its statement, “Fantastic gardens, hybrid creatures, bouquets of epiphytic stories, synthetic fragrances and mythological machines, but also colors, crystals, songs, and infrasounds which could be intended for us humans as much as for our contemporaries: plants, animals, minerals, breaths and chemistries, waves and bacteria, are just some of the ingredients that make up the porous landscapes of this Fifteenth Lyon Biennale”, the main theme of this edition will be an ecosystem.
