From the book to the space: Jukhee Kwon
Both destructive and restorative, the work of Korean born artist Jukhee Kwon sees books shredded and manipulated until they become something whole and monumental – they sometimes even become trees. Her work is inspired by artist John Latham who also used ideas of disintegration and the book, once changing the form of Greenberg’s Art and Culture by getting his students to chew the pages into a liquid.
Jukhee Kwon studied Fine Art at Chung-ang University in Korea and completed her MA in Book Arts from Camberwell College, University of the Arts London in 2011. She has been awarded the An-dong painting prize in Korea and exhibits widely in both Europe and Korea.
