Korean, b. 1972, Seoul, South-Korea I based in Paris, France
Imaginary travels between earth and heaven, journeys between valleys and clouds. She invents star spangled paths on which the gaze strolls along. Her universe is poetic like an inner path. Hyun Joung invites you to a ballad, to follow her into the aerial views that were born from the blast of her chidlhood in Korea, her eternal love for the bush and her work with metal. From these 3 elements, she created her universe. From her past in Korea, she kept the memory of the materials and beliefs of her ancestors. Rice piper is the skin of this memory, and the enamal shells form the secret symbols.
