August 1 – September 29, 2019
Inhwan Oh was born in Seoul, where he currently lives and works. His experimental and conceptual artwork and participatory projects draw on the contexts of particular spaces and times, based on his interest in social and cultural issues. Utilizing his own experiences as a gay man living in Korea, his process-driven work translates and deconstructs the relationship between individual identity and collectiveness within patriarchal societies, as well as the cultural codes that are shaped by this.
Inhwan has exhibited in venues such as Space Willing N Dealing, Seoul (2018); Daegu Art Factory, Daegu, Korea (2019); Kyoto Art Center, Nijo-Castle, Kyoto, (2017); and Art Sonje Center, Seoul (2014). He has participated in various artist-in-residence programs such as Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, and Kyoto Art Center / Kyoto City University of Arts (2011). He is the winner of the Korea Artists Prize (2015).
