Korea Society Presents Artist Talk: Heeseop Yoon

Artist Talk: Heeseop Yoon, Korea Society
Online program, July 12, 2022, 5pm EDT

Although her intricate installations are often so large that they spread over walls onto ceilings and floors, Heeseop Yoon, whose solo exhibition Agglomeration is on view at The Korea Society Gallery through August 25, thinks of her work as freehand drawings. All of Yoon’s works are based on real spaces with vast messes, such as basements, workshops, storage spaces, or “places where everything is jumbled and time becomes ambiguous without the presence of people.” Based on photographs, Yoon draws freehand without erasing; based on her own drawings, she creates her enlarged wall drawings using black tapes. In the final installation, her miscalculations and corrections are visible, as Yoon is interested in how memory and perception constantly adjust both for herself and for her viewer, and the paradox that the more she corrects her work, the less legible the drawing becomes. In this video presentation, Yoon discusses her career and work.
