Kyung Hwa Shon

Lives and works in Seoul and London. Shon has studied internationally at the Royal College of Art, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Hong-Ik University, and École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. Shon was a Starr scholar at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Her current research project has focused on the relationships between an identity of city and imagination. The city as a field of excavation provides the rediscovery of psychological heteromorphic identification, the presence of invisible substance, and fantastic visual experiences emanating from serendipitous moments of glitch. Shon has shown her artwork internationally at the Seoul Olympic Museum of Art, Alternative Space Loop, Blyth Gallery at the Imperial College, Dyson Gallery at the Royal College of Art, Royal Academy of Arts, the Korean Cultural Service New York, and the Korean Cultural Centre in UK, and so on.
