Se Young’s artistic practice is centered around the exploration of the vulnerable physicality of the body and the representation of intimate moments or places imbued with an eerie quality. Through her art, she seeks to capture the fragile nature of humans.
In pursuit of her artistic vision, Se Young maintains a daily routine of writing dream journals and exploring the city through photography. She collects images and objects that are familiar and domestic, which she then reassembled into her art. Her work oscillates between concealing and revealing, always with a subtle sense.
Through her art, Se Young creates a space for her audience to reflect on the complexities of love and the fleeting nature of connections between people and place. Her work invites viewers to engage with their emotions and memories.
