I am a performance artist, experimental theater director, acting coach, and art educator based in Seoul, Korea. I am an experience designer, presenting an immersive environment that allows an audience to investigate a thoroughly constructed space and time. I explore the private and public manifestations of a female Asian body within the larger context of socio-cultural power relations in Korean and American society. Recently,I have participated in the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival 2013, Ansan International Street Art Festival 2013, Cheongju International Performing Art Festival 2013 and was also selected as an emerging interdisciplinary artist by the Korean Art Council. I received her BA and MA in Theater at Cheongju University and MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Projects I’m working on:
I recently started working on a site-specific project that will take place at the old Seoul Station building. It is a historic site in Korea which was built in 1925 during the Japanese occupation of Korea. The building functioned as a central station of Seoul until 2004, then it was turned into a cultural center which not many visited. This place as a center, point of departure and a destination for people’s dreams of a big city, is full of collective memories, experiences and stories within the span of the past 80 years. I will be retelling these stories and memories.
Now we hear from Prof Ian Hargreaves @CreativeCardiff - should more public bodies follow @NTWtweets approach, eschewing permanent iconic buildings and siting their work in the context of the communities they seek to work for?
