Yu Jinyoung was born in Korea, 1977. Lives and works in Seoul.

‘ Yu Jinyoung portrays truth and illusions of a family with a house, the hideaway of these people, as a background. The artist’s previous work expresses a portrait of humans trapped in a society, and she has moved the meeting of her work into a fence called as home. Through everyday lives of family in very limited space called home, the inner world of family is closely examined.

The family wants to turn away their eyes from all discords and indifferences that are happening in a form of home, which should be intimate the most. They refuse an exposure to the outside by hiding themselves because they don’t want to show their pretentious look as a friendly family. How the alienated family disguises themselves as friendly ones is portrayed through an uncomfortable meeting with guests who attend to family events like big holidays. The children, who came to terms with reputations and bluffs of adults from guest’s visitation, automatically adapt themselves to hold down their emotions. The emotion spreads so far as to a dog. ‘ (Continue reading…)
