From January 20, the 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art will present an exhibition of the work of influential and pioneering Korean conceptual artist, Lee Kun-Yong.

Curated by Michael Do and Mikala Tai, Equal Area presents photographic documentation of performances that span Lee's nearly six-decade career. Lee's work, which has shaped the nature of global contemporary performance art, explores the connection between logic and action through performance and re-performance.

Equal Area will open with a performance of one of Lee's most critically acclaimed works, Snail's Gallop, followed by live interventions and a series of performances by contemporary Australian artists Huseyin Sami, Daniel Von Sturmer and Emily Parsons-Lord. Over the five-week exhibition, the performances will develop as will the collaboration with these three Australian artists.

The exhibition opens on Saturday, January 20 with a Korean barbecue, which guests can attend (with Lee) for $30. As part of the Lunar New Year Celebrations, the 4A team will also be hosting a congee breakfast tour of Chinatown and a private viewing of the Equal Area exhibition on February 17 for just $20.
