Hyun Jung Ahn / アン・ヒョンジョン

アン・ヒョンジョンは韓国ソウル出身で、ブルックリンを拠点に活動するマルチディシプリナリーアーティスト。作品を通して、彼女は “心の形 “と呼ぶ謎めいた抽象的な形を探求している。彼女は、感情、個人的なつながり、感情的な状態をとらえた視覚的な日記から描くことから始める。そして、これらの概念をミニマルなドローイング、絵画、彫刻に変換する。ラ・メール・ギャラリー(韓国、ソウル)の「Emerging Young Artist」に選ばれ、バディット・アート(イタリア、トスカーナ)の「Emerging Art Award」を受賞。バーモント・スタジオ・センター(ジョンソン、VT)、MASS MoCA(ノース・アダムス、MA)、トレッスル・アート・スペース(ブルックリン、NY)などのレジデンスに参加。現在、ブルックリンとソウルを拠点に活動している。

Hyun Jung Ahn is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist from Seoul, South Korea. Through her work, she investigates enigmatic abstract forms, which she references as “shapes of mind.” She begins by drawing from her visual diary, which captures feelings, personal connections, and emotional states of being. She then translates these notions into minimalistic drawing, painting, and sculpture. Ahn was selected as the ‘Emerging Young Artist’ at La Mer Gallery, Seoul, South Korea, and was the winner of the Emerging Art Award at Baditto Art, Tuscany, Italy. She has attended residencies including Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT, MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA, and Trestle Art Space, Brooklyn, NY. Ahn Graduated from Duk-Sung Women’s University, Seoul and received her M.F.A in painting and drawing from Pratt Institute and currently lives and works in Brooklyn and Seoul.
