Hyun Ah Kwon – Perspective. List í Ljósi 2020

List í Ljósi festival, Seyðisfjörður, 13.-15. February 2020, daily 18:00 – 22:00.

Skaftfell’s current artist in residence Hyun Ah Kwon (KR) is participating in the annual List í Ljósi light festival in Seyðisfjörður, with a video installation in the campsite reception building.

Hyun Ah’s project for the List í Ljósi festival will present her recent video installation “Perspective” (2018) in a new context. The work draws upon the experience of the Sublime, brought upon by a visual blurring of private and public spaces. Using the spatially disorienting effects of light and video, projected and reflected from indoor to outdoor spaces and vice versa, Hyun Ah is interested in visualizing the interlacing and disintegration of boundaries between an inner self and an outer self, which for her constitutes the sublime experience.

Hyun Ah Kwon (b. 1991) is a visual artist, sound producer and printmaker from Seoul, South Korea, who is currently based in London. She graduated from Central Saint Martins, London (MFA, 2018), Ewha Woman’s University in Seoul (BA, 2015), and the Global Student Program at the University of California, Davis (2014). She is artist in residence at Skaftfell from January to March 2020.
