Yen Noh (b.1983) has received a BFA from Hongik Universität in Seoul and a MA in Transdisziplinäre Kunst from the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Looking into the unclosed gap between the “original” and “translation” in cultural relativity, Noh takes language and translation as her themes to produce ‘speech performance’ in which a spoken language becomes a critical agent to rethink the relationship between spoken language, speaking body and its mind. Recently, she has re-examined the history of the translation of European modernist aesthetics into Japan and Korea under Japanese rule in Korea. She is concerned with an “archival mind” in action and togetherness, in order to create a temporary, yet intimate community of thinking, dialogue and discourse.

She recently graduated as an artist-in-residence at the post-graduate programme De Ateliers, Amsterdam (2015-17) and was awarded the Columbus Advancement Prize for Contemporary Art (2016).
