Hyung-Min Yoon

Born in Seoul, Hyung-Min Yoon studied Fine Art at Korean National University of Arts in Seoul (BFA) and Chelsea College of Art in London (MFA). Her work deals with everyday life and objects. Crossing different genres – installation, photography, video, etc. – she raises questions about perception of materialistic overabundance and seemingly insignificant matters. At first sight, Yoon’s work lures the spectator into a false sense of immediate understanding with its visual simplicity. At close observation, the viewer discovers that the banality overcomes its limitation and produces vestiges of itself, hence, a poem of the trivial.
