1994, South Korea
Yang-ha(b.1994) collects historical images and uses them to tell stories on flat surfaces. She finds the world to be full of contradictory tragedies that she is unable to comprehend. Although she used to solve tragedies by attending protests, she realized that there is nothing she can do about it. Her clumsy painting gestures could be directed at the society in which we live. In her paintings, she plays with cute vocabulary between figurative and abstract painting languages to the space as well. This indicates her sarcastic attitude toward this contradictory planet. These unintentional errors in the works are a prayer for a better life.
