OVERVIEW


Biography

Yunhee Huh’s drawings use universal visual metaphors combined in new ways to open an East-West dialog. She often enlarges her works to monumental wall-drawings, working with charcoal stick attached to a broom. In her video of these performances, the rhythmic scratching of the charcoal stick on the wall draw in the viewer. Through her works, Huh demonstrates an urgency to communicate her own experiences, often tackling facets of loss.

Yunhee Huh is a Seoul-based artist who studied painting at Ewha Womans University in Korea and Bremen Arts University in Germany. Her work has been included in solo exhibitions at Insa Art Space, Project Space Sarubia, Soma Museum of Art, Gallery des Westens, Kultur Palast Wedding international. Her work was also included in Documenta 12 Magazine, Kassel, Germany. She has participated in residency programs including; Kultur Palast Wedding International, Berlin; Iwami International Artist Residence, Tottori; and Changdong Art Studio, Seoul.
