Jin Young Yu’s work explores the disparity between the outward and inward self. While her work has drawn on an ever-evolving storyline— from the family overtly flamboyant in its attempt to appear “normal” as it entertains guests, to the hidden scars we all carry with and within us—Yu’s conceptual impetus is consistently clear: to acknowledge the anxiety of social situations, and to expose the implicit acts of cover-up one engages in as he or she adheres to social convention
Yu Jinyoung (*1977, Seoul, Korea) lives and works in Seoul. She studied sculpture at the Sungshin Women’s University in Seoul. Her work has been exhibited internationally including Milan, Cologne, London, New York and Paris.
