After graduating from Hongik University with a B.F.A. in painting, Koh Jaewook has illuminated aspects of the youth today by presenting installations that encourage viewer participation. Koh debuted with his first solo exhibition Never Let Me Go at Seoul Art Space Seogyo in 2013, and one of his major projects, RENTABLE ROOM, has been displayed at different exhibition spaces such as Space Haebang, Orange Pencil, Vanziha, Gauss, and Seoul Art Space Seogyo in 2014 and at DRP (Dongdaemun Rooftop Paradise) in 2015, in an attempt to reach out to a wider audience. Various video installations and short stories by the artist are available at Koh’s website (www.jaewookkoh.com).
