... EX­PLORE THE MIND. Catch the art world’s new wun­derkind. Korean artist, JeeYoung Lee cre­ates mag­i­cal, dream-like master­pieces in the form of sets that would send ec­cen­tric pho­tog­ra­pher Tim Walker’s mind rac­ing. This month, JeeYoung Lee is set to open her first Euro­pean ex­hi­bi­tion aptly ti­tled ‘Stage of Mind: Scènes d’Esprit’, giv­ing us a closer look into the work­ings of her fas­ci­nat­ing mind. In a mi­nus­cule stu­dio mea­sur­ing three by six me­tres, her sur­re­al­is­tic me­ta­mor­phoses are re­alised within the con­fines of a phys­i­cal space. With a per­sonal blend of fan­tasy and light­ness, Lee an­swers the age old mys­tery of “who am I?” in each dif­fer­ent set she de­signs, which are art­fully re­strained by the in­her­ent lim­its of the con­ven­tional pho­to­graphic medium. “Each set rep­re­sents a pho­to­graphic elu­ci­da­tion of my con­cerns about my iden­tity,” says Lee. Take it from us: this artist is def­i­nitely one to keep an eye on! From Fe­bru­ary 7 to March 7 at the Opiom Gallery, 11 Chemin du Vil­lage, Opio, France.

... LIVE FOR FASH­ION. Cam­era bulbs flash­ing, the click-clack of the sea­son’s cov­eted heels fill­ing the streets with sar­to­rial mu­sic, and the world’s most fab­u­lously dressed lined up in the front row. This her­alds the be­gin­ning of Paris Fash­ion Week! Why don’t you catch a show or two, or sim­ply peo­ple-watch from a chic Parisian side­walk café as the style set re­turns to the city of all things fash­ion? Ex­pe­ri­ence the colour­ful sights and sounds of Paris Fash­ion Week from Fe­bru­ary 25 to March 5.
