EUIJEONG YOO

ABOUT ARTIST YOO EUI JEONG The Latin “factum,” which is the origin of the English word “fact,” contains within it the meaning of “made.”For me this means that the truth as we know it is based upon things that are “made”—things that we construct. My works deal with the past of a future which is made to appear real. “The past of the future”in this context embraces the present, and what I deal with is the present. “The present” only exists because the past has existed. By the same token, the future is an extension of the present. As a contemporary artist, I take note of present phenomena. The current state in which our present culture exists is perhaps a corollary of the co-existence of the traditional and the modern, the analogue and the...

JEHOON OH

ABOUT ARTIST OH JE HOON Idea of drawing yarns came to Jaehoon Oh suddenly and unexpectedly. While going through somewhat of a creative slump recently, Oh saw a friend stitching yarns to make a winter gift for another friend. A hand stitched gift using yarn… Oh decided that she wanted to create artworks that are as warm as these yarns. Her other artwork series, Dear J, started during her artist residency in Long Island City, US. She came across a flooring sample made of plastic but that looks like wood. There are so many things around us that are just like this; packaged to look like real but are not real. We become so used to seeing them that we are numb. Maybe it is...

SONG YU LIM

ABOUT ARTIST SONG YU LIM Yulim Song tells her story through the work of stitching using needle and various colored thread instead of brush and color. Naturally exposed needle stitches and embroidery evokes a more intimate and raw emotions towards the audience, conjuring the audience’s own precious memories and nostalgia of the ‘analogue experiences’ of the past days. Through the artworks, Song seems to shyly reveal her stories that could have come out of her secret diary, told to the audience as if to confess. Looking at the artwork alone gives us a peaceful moment’s pause, a break from the busy life, as it shares a glimpse of its meticulous and sincere craftsmanship that almost seem to hold the time to a standstill for a...
