Jewyo Rhii


Jewyo Rhii (1971– ) has combined variable, ephemeral and mundane materials to make a point about issues out of her own experience and about narratives that take place in a specific circumstance. The artist has attempted to find a meaning of things that exist in the center or the periphery of an institution or system. However, her work is not confined to speculative issues or personal dilemma or

problems. With her own style, she portrays resistance against the familiar and intangible norm as well as conflict present in systems of society and the art. In order to achieve this, Rhii often proposes new ways of conceiving routined exhibition events,or resurfaces the struggles that were made from

preexisting norms and reveal them in a new light.
