  • Choi Daejin Artist

    It was a coincidence that Daejin Choi began working as an artist during his stay in France after finishing his studies in a different field. The artist says his artistic inspiration comes from his identity as a Korean who had not previously experienced art and the space of conflict created from his acceptance of art based on Western ideas during his 15-year-stay in France. Choi’s works deal with political and historical issues one would find familiar through the mass media. He studied art at Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy in Paris, France, and Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, France. Choi has held several solo exhibitions in France at Le musee de La Roche-sur-Yon in 2008 and Galerie Metropolis in 2010 and in Korea at Alternative Space LOOP in 2011 and Project Space Sarubia in 2012.

  • Kim Jinhui Artist

    After graduating from the University of Seoul, Korea, with a B.F.A in environmental sculpture, Jinhui Kim taught at an art school for several years. One day, the artist experienced a tragic event that left half his face paralyzed, which led him to quit his teaching job and go back to artwork. Kim then began a master’s degree program in sculpture at Seoul National University, Korea, and during this period the artist was able to take some time to dwell in his art world and contemplate future projects. It was then that Kim came up with the idea of creating a series of art projects—the Dust and Color Point-Filters series—and first presented his finished works. He still continues these series today. Kim draws inspiration for his art from “coincidental encounters with dust” in which the artist, who describes himself as a dry and tasteless figure lacking any sensation in the daily life, shuddered with thrill in a rare and precious experience; “visual peculiarities” of observing the world through colored dots; and “physical peculiarities ingrained from the birth,” such as a ringing in the ears or a headache. Since 2008, the artist has held four solo exhibitions as well as a number of group exhibitions.
