Joo-hee Yang will arrive at Highgreen on 9th October to be VARC’s artist in residence here until July 2018. Joo-hee Yang is South Korean and comes from Seoul but she has lived and worked in Paris and Marseilles and has exhibited in Italy, France, Germany and Canada as well as in South Korea.
Yang works with a variety of materials to make sculptural pieces. Her works reference the brutal concrete construction of urban cities but also of its impermanence and decay. She speaks of the strength but also the fragility of nature. The artist draws on local culture and uses its materials and meanings to make sculptures that explore particular aspects of place or cultural traditions.
