Jeeeun Hong is a visual artist, currently based in UK and Korea. Hong works with photography, painting, installation and publication. Hong contemplates a personal sanctuary; a place where the viewer is invited to discover a personal sanctuary of their own. In order to explore personal sanctuary, Hong gives attention to the balance between inside and outside to create a space with translucent fabrics; thus, expands the way of thinking through such expression. Fabrics serve as a sort of buffer or protection, being a medium of providing stability between the worlds inside and outside. Hong half conceals herself through translucent fabrics, not exposing herself directly, as much as one indirectly experiences the senses of outside by putting on his/her fabrics. It is a projection of her experiences of alleviation and reconciliation that she had when she felt cultural foreignness during the time of living abroad and when she was bewildered between digital and analogue, reinterpreted in her own way and dissolved in her work. Hybridization and reconciliation composed of weft threads and warp threads are the process of communication, connecting the outside space with the inner side space and locating the balance between the two. Hong leads the way to take the visual experience beyond the meaning indicated by the form so that the nature of things can be recognized. In this process, Hong links her social cultural experience with the balance reminded by the visual mediational experience to go deeper into the reasoning about rest and balance. Hong also wishes that her work can be reinterpreted through the balance point produced from the relationship between spaces of thought that are created through the gaps seen-through, folded, or piled up in interactions with the others, so that it is expanded into their lives and continues on as a journey finding their own space for rest.
