Guem Minjeong


Guem Minjeong was born in Seoul in 1977. She obtained both B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees in sculpture at Hongik University. She was named Kumho Young Artist (2008) and participated in artist residencies at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Korea (MOCA), the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) and the SFAC Art Space in Hongeun. Since her first solo exhibition, House, in 2006, Guem has showcased a series of site-specific video and sculpture installation works – ‘Breathing,’ ‘Twisted,’ and ‘Melting Object’ series - on the theme of ‘breathing space.’ She creates asculptural work with architectural elements such as the wall, floor, and door of a space and installs monitors that show videos visualizing psychological experience or emotion about the space as part of the sculpture, creating a whole new space where the sculpture and the video are incorporated.
