Joon YOO


South Korea

Born in 1985 in South Korea. 

Joon Yoo studied French literature and fashion design in Seoul. After a few professional experiences in fashion design in Korea, she decided to come to France to study at the Beaux-Arts in Bourges, then Paris. Joon Yoo experiments with time as a base material. Through different media such as performance, painting, and video, she tries to compose time differently and get rid of its systematic, mechanical aspect. With her pieces, she creates a vibration letting us imagine a kind of flexibility, freedom, and change within this normed, implacable element. Joon Yoo was awarded the Jennifer Flay Prize. She was involved in solo and collective exhibitions in France and abroad, for instance at the Espace Niemeyer and the Galerie du Crous in Paris, the Kunstraum Postdamer Strasse in Berlin, and the Drawing Festival in Pusan, South Korea.
