artist statement
Birthed from the touch of pouring, wiping, sanding, moving, Seoyoung (b. 1999, Seoul)’s practice lies in consideration of the boundaries of duality that comes in the ritual of making: completion and incompletion, absence and presence, control and surrender, and more.

The hyper-presence of duality and their connection are tracings, leaving evidence of what was there. Her works deliver and engrave the experience of duration, the moving of space and time on the border of personal and communal. The iterations present a new surrounding for the viewers to explore their own resonance, to think about the present and environment they are encountering. The scarring of surfaces is to direct one’s experience, to provide guidance, to pace and curate ever-presence, collecting “real-world references”. She considers the world building experience for both herself as maker and for viewers; crafting environments to generate focus; clarity in mind.

Rebuilding and reimaging surroundings and continuum through visual language, the works showcase a new window, inviting one to experience their own space and time, along with the moment she shares her dialogues through haptic momentum meeting the surface.
