Artist Statement

Working primarily with painting and often combining it with digital printing, installation, and objects, Jiyoung Yoo examines the way a format of medium transforms its content. Her practice is primarily focussed on the conversion of indefinite ideas in flux into disconnected fragments arranged within a certain frame and on the consequent substitution of their nature with the medium’s formal qualities. Yoo employs painting as a means of visualising the process by questioning the underlying principle of painting where it has its external relation to the wall and internal relation to content. Overlapping the conditions of painting with daily elements within the system of arrangement, her works unfold an unusual painting situation where the viewers are invited to perceive the structure within and outside the medium.

 

 

Biography

Jiyoung Yoo is a South Korean-born artist who is based in London and Seoul. Questioning the conventional conditions of painting, Yoo explores relationships between objects within the system of arrangement developed based on their uses. She graduated with an MA degree in Painting from the Slade School of Fine Art, London (2017) and received a BFA in Painting from Hongik University, Seoul (2014). She recently had two solo exhibitions in Seoul including One After Another, Alltimespace (2019); and Spilled Water, RainbowCube (2018). She has been awarded grants and residencies, among which are: the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture’s solo show grant (2021) and research grant (2019); and the position of artist-in-residence at Seoul Art Space Geumcheon, Seoul (2021) and Katitak Centre, HKBU, Hong Kong (2018). She was the finalist of Korean Eye 2020 organised by Parallel Contemporary Art (2020) and Contemporary Visions 8 run by Beers London (2017).

She is a studying for a master’s degree in the Department of Sculpture at Seoul National University college of Art.

 

Her first individual exhibition was Serious Warming-up at the KIGOJA in 2015 and as part of the group exhibition Seoul Babel at the Seoul Museum of Art in 2015.

 

 

I have been curious about the movement of people in the digital media environment to express their opinions. Humans who dream of a new world as subjects who changed history have created movements from the past to the present with their thoughts and will in their bodies. Individuals showed all the movements aimed at a developmental direction to resolve when society lost its developmentality.

 

The daily and continuous movements that people make are made into short videos. This is an anticipation for a future that is not yet visible. I’m interested in where the direction of the force toward the future is headed by collecting many shorts videos like trailer. Create a situation to assess the identity and capture the moments that will be created in the future.

I received BFA and MFA in sculpture department of Seoul National University in South Korea and studied in the fiber department of the School of Art Institute of Chicago in USA. I have had solo show twice including “Living Island” in CICA Museum in Kimpo, Korea in 2020, and I have been participated in several group shows including “Contemporary Landscape in Flux” in The Research House for Asian Art in Chicago in 2021. I have been in one-month program residencies in Monson Arts, Vermont Studio Center, and MASS MOCA in US, and currently working in one-year residency program in Seoul Art Space Geumcheon run by Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture.

 


Note for practice_Sujin Moon

A sense of touch is the basis for all the other sensations. Sight is reconstructed image in the brain from sensing the light when it touches the retina, hearing is to sense the sound wave when it touches the eardrum, taste is a chemical reaction to the foods particles touching the taste buds on tongue, and smell is to sense the odor molecules touching the olfactory cells in the nose. All senses involve a tactile process of ‘touching’ with something.

I define myself as a sculptor. Making sculpture is touching something: touching something’s surface, feeling the texture and resistance of it, and carrying the weight of the thing and wrestling and struggling with it with my whole body.

My practice involves performance carrying my own weight or some other things’ one. My sculptures and installations are often created in a way of pressing and mark-making. Mark-making is occurred when two different bodies attach to each other firmly enough to remain their skins on each other’s bodies. I accepted the process of it as physical and metaphorical.

I tend to regard something invisible and intangible as the things have physical presence. I believe that something without physical body such as thoughts or emotions also has physical power to make something or someone moves. As a sculptor, my goal is making some intangible things into touchable, and remaining marks of something without body.

 


Living Island, 2020

The exhibition consists of documenting materials of the performance work, ‘Living Island’, which occurred from the beginning of February to mid-March 2020 at Lake Hebron in Monson, Maine. ‘Living Island’, a month-long performance project, creates a snow island on the frozen lake with the simple act of shoveling snow until the spring starts the island melt. The work is intertwined with the ideas of the fear from the situation of standing and working on the unstable earth, on the ice, the alertness of latent death, the vulnerability of being, and the consolation from the connection and solidarity with people.

 

Considering the nature of performance work, which is always moment-specific, the question of how to present the performance afterwards in the gallery space always matter. In this sense, the documenting materials are created as interpretations of the memories of the performance, rather than a representation of it. I attempted to find the appropriate forms for the textures and shapes of fragments of the memories. Some moments become a bundle of papers which is bounded to physical weight and thickness. Some other moments become a video, or in other words, light. The other becomes a movement, which is waiting to be activated by someone flipping their fingers.

 

We have passed through a long year. This year was colder and harsher than any other winters due to the spread of the novel virus so that we had to stay inside longer than ever. In this difficult moment, we cannot let the anxiety out of our mind completely. I look back again at the memories of being on the lake and I rethink how weak and small we are, and how much we can be consoled by someone’s support, as I could be by the people in Monson. I hope this work will be a metaphor for lives and a humble gesture of support and solidarity to someone who visits the show.
