Student Profile

Dongwan Hong
MFA, Art Studio

I was born in Seoul, South Korea. Through my practice, I try to reveal the various conditions involved in making an artwork in order to rethink the value of art that is freed from its myth of creativity. My work often employs the strategy of disguise, which re-creates the boundaries between art and life within the exhibition space such as the gallery or the museum. On the other hand, I reconnect art with daily life by setting a new context outside the institutions. In my search for the conditions of art making, I begin to become curious about how it can be applied to other artists and audience members in different social and cultural environments, and how my own condition, as well as the society to which I belong, is socially and culturally distinct.
