About the Artist:
Sungyeon Park is artist and researcher, demonstrating her work through an interdisciplinary, complex and artistic social language. She seeks to challenge societal beliefs about art in her work by representing trivial parts of daily life through a diverse range of artistic genres, such as literature, theater, and sound. Park majored in fine arts at Ewha Womans University and Chelsea College of Art and Design at the University of the Arts London. Her projects are currently supported by Arts Council Korea and have been previously supported by a wide range of organizations including but not limited to the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation and Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture.
Park has participated in numerous residences such as the Art Omi International Residency (2010), the International Studio & Curatorial Program (2010), the MacDowell Colony (2011), Taipei Artist Village of Taipei Culture Foundation (2011), the National Art Studio of The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Korea (2012), and Kulturamtes der Landeshauptstadt Düsseldorf (2012).
For The Hidden Space, Park will exhibit drawings and a carefully designed yarn installation portraying the inner space of a house. As a part of this installation, she will present sound recordings that use a computer program to convert conversational voice into a musical scale. The Hidden Space prompts its audience to gain insight into familiar aspects of daily life, urging its viewers to reflect on their lives and to see the value of everyday human experiences.
