  • Young In Hong


    Young In Hong (b.1972, South Korea) works in the UK and Korea. Young In engages in research-led practice. Her practice and research are therefore indistinguishable; her research interests are undervalued cultural practices, the politics of intuition and the concept of equality. Her art practice and research are a series of investigations into the notion of modernity, which she sees as an intensive force of experience. The main disciplines she is currently working with are textiles and performance – within a fine art context. Young In’s embroidery paintings and performances are often closely intertwined, and have been exhibited at international venues including Turner Contemporary, Margate (2017), Grand Palais, Paris (2016), Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju (2014/2004), Delfina Foundation, London (2014). In 2019 she was selected to participate in the Korea Art Prize, organized by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea. Young In obtained a BA in Sculpture from Seoul National University (1996), and went on to achieve an MA and PhD in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College (2000, 2012).
