Seongmin Yoo is a Korean-born conceptual and installation artist that now lives in America. Known for her inventive use of space and materials, her body of work involves collage, painting, and assemblage as well as a variety of materials found in nature. Daughter to the great Korean haiku poet, Boon Ok Han, Seongmin often utilizes traditional Korean embroidery and ink wash techniques. Seongmin’s work frequently deals with spirituality, the body, women’s rights and the interaction between her east and west identities.
A contemporary of Wangechi Mutu and Kiki Smith, Seongmin embraces the multimedia and multicultural approach to installation art. Working in the futurist tradition, her work features startling hybrid figures and otherworldly images. She embellishes her figures and structures with repurposed materials creating her own surrealistic world. Provocative, powerful, and profound, Seongmin Yoo is considered one of the most important working conceptual installation artists.
