About Joon Yoo
South Korea. 1985.
Joon Yoo experiments time as a raw material. Through different media such as performance, painting and video she attempts to compose with time differently, to emancipate from its systematic and mechanical nature. Through her pieces, she creates a vibration, allowing her to imagine a form of flexibility, freedom and change within this normative and implacable element. Joon Yoo studied French literature and fashion design in Seoul. Following a working experience in women’s ready-to-wear in South Korea, she decided to come to France to study Fine Art. She was admitted to the Beaux-Arts school in Paris and studied in Ann Veronica Janssens’ atelier. In 2016, she was selected for the 67th Jeune Création edition at Gallery Thaddaeus Ropac in Pantin and was awarded the Jennifer Flay prize. In 2018, she realized a personal exhibition In a Relationship at Galerie du Crous in Paris. She also participated in group exhibitions in France and abroad, notably at Espace Neimeyer in Paris (2019, France), at Kunstraum Postdamer Strasse in Berlin (2019, Germany), at Pusan Drawing Festival (2017, Korea), and at Palais Jacques Coeur in Bourges (2014, France).
