Mimi Jung (Korea, 1981) studied at Cooper Union, New York, and HGK Basel. Her work examines multiple dimensions of self-preservation, particularly as it relates to private and public self-representation, and the ways in which those depictions are manifested through social and cultural mores. Her constructed forms, with their voids and translucencies, are fixed but never static: the viewer actively controls the experience of transit around and through them, reflecting inward on their own behaviours. In the end, Jung’s limning of space is reflexive: visible to those who are predisposed to see.
Jung’s work has been exhibited at Chamber in New York City, Les Gens Heureux in Copenhagen, Design Miami/ in Miami and the Collective Design Fair in New York City. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
