Eun-Kyung Suh (South Korea) Residency: June 2018
Korean-born artist, Eun-Kyung Suh completed her M.F.A. from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA, USA. Since 2008, she have been investigating the diasporic experiences of immigrants, transracial adoptees, and refugees, highlighting their fragmentary lives that resulted from involuntary or voluntary displacement.
In response to this investigation, Suh plans to focus on my personal experience of displacement during the residency period which is truly voluntary and temporary.
Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Minneapolis, MN, Conrad Wilde Gallery, Tucson, AZ, Nord Gallery, San Antonio, TX, Galerie sei-un-do, Zurich, Switzerland, Montreal Center for Contemporary Textiles, Montreal, Canada, Barabas Villa Gallery, Budapest, Hungary, Hwasung Museum, Korea and etc. Her textile work was published in Textiles: The Art of Mankind by Mary Schoeser Thames & Hudson, Dec 2012. Currently Eun-Kyung Suh is a Professor in the Department of Art and Design at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.
