  • Features essays by eminent critics, curators and educators who have closely witnessed Hong's artistic development
Full Description

Hong Seung-Hye has garnered a unique position in the Seoul art scene with her bravado in defying conventional borders. She sees no restraints in crisscrossing the border between the abstract and the figurative, the plane and the three-dimensional. Nor does she shy away from employing public spaces just as freely as she experiments inside a white cube.

This first monograph on Hong traces the trajectory of her prolific oeuvre. It features four essays written by distinguished Korean critics, curators and educators who have closely witnessed and worked alongside Hong throughout the past two decades. Originally written in context with solo exhibitions, each of which marking a milestone in her career, they offer individual starting points to delve into and read Hong’s art. Ranging from her earliest paper collages to the most recent videos reinterpreting Snoopy from iconic comic strip The Peanuts, this book illustrated with some 200 colour plates provides a comprehensive survey of Hong’s versatility.
