“As a culturally displaced artist, I have been drawn to the theme of cultural displacement and identity, and to social psychological and cross-cultural studies that are heavily influenced by immigrant experiences and by the interaction between people and space. My most recent projects have adopted a documentary approach and artistic archives to present my experiences of dislocation and rootlessness in our contemporary nomadic culture.” – Joo Yeon Woo
