KEUM Hyewon

Born in Seoul in 1979, Keum Hyewon has published works that exhibit the physical and emotional environment of a city and social phenomena derived from the environment mainly using the photograph media. She has an interest in unveiling and calling attention to rapidly changing urban space and the obscure reality hidden by a boring and lonesome daily life. She is planning reconstruction by linking unheeded personal history and public memories and combining reality and fiction. Accordingly, she intends to collect and extract data on the modern and contemporary history of Korea as well as literary works and proceed with artwork that combines stories, photos and videos during the period of residence at Incheon Art Platform.
