Hae-Sun Hwang

Born 1969 in Seoul, Korea


Hae Sun Hwang begins her work with a simple drawing, just like writing a journal. Sometimes it produces a situation, or a form, but what Hwnag wants to capture is the moment in the happenings that took place. With neither a sense of weight nor mass, Hwang always expresses sculptural ideas. Works that involve the minimum sculptural units, works do not dramatically fill a space but that breathe through the Emptiness.

 

In the Drawing Sculptures, Hwang draws the outlines of person from our everyday life by steel and shadow. The outlines are not from the people taking pose. She draws the sketches of person who is exposed without any preparation. She tries to show this unguarded moment and expression from each face and pose. Although the individual could not remember such a short period of time, this unguarded moment represents them firmly in exhibit spaces.
