Shin Yoola


With SHIN Yoola (b. 1972), sceneries are densely populated. Made of white velvet curtains, the panoramas are bright and poetical, playing on transparencies. The lightness and beauty of her compositions contrasts with the darkness of the topic. Battles and devastating historical events are narrated, a kind of transition from an unnatural or superficial illusion to a device to reflect a rational attitude.
