RohwaJeong

RohwaJeong is an artist duo composed of Yunhee Noh and Hyunseok Jeong, who produce and present works together through collaboration. RohwaJeong is a hypothetical personality created by the two artists, and at the same time, consistently builds up a unique identity as an artist. RohwaJeong presents a wide range of oeuvres under the broad theme, ‘relationship.’ Based on a fluid and experimental attitude, the duo endlessly experiments with new pursuits by traversing through various media and methods. RohwaJeong’s works begin from the relationship between the two artists, and develop as they widen their point of view to the relationship between the individual and society, education, community, etc. The intricate negotiation and containment, criticism, and compromise between the two artists are inevitable tasks that RohwaJeong faces while composing and expressing their works. The duo exceptionally presents the personal yet universal, private yet objective narratives extracted from these tasks as sufficient and creative outcomes.

Folding Screen (2018), presented in this exhibition, is an installation that refers to the form of a traditional folding screen. The different shaped and sized frames are connected to each other with hinges, and support one another to stand upright. Working the eyes from the left to right, the audience reaches the surface of the mirror placed last on the right side. On the surface of the mirror, the audience faces a silkscreened repeat sign. It is the artist’s witty implication for the folding screen structure that can be folded into one, as if directing the eyes back to the beginning. The planes composed of various materials such as silkscreen mesh, birch tree panels, mirrors, etc. project and reflect the inside and outside of the frames through different transparency and reflectance. The relationship between the space where the work is placed and the audience changes from moment to moment depending on the location of the viewpoint. To establish a link with the participating artists who recognize the motif of reality in their works through different methods, it could allude to the temporary gathering of different artists who each maintain their own perspective in this exhibition.

Yunhee Noh and Hyunseok Jeong were both born in Seoul, 1981. They both entered College of Arts, Kookmin University, and each received their Bachelor’s degrees in Fine Arts in 2005 and 2006, consecutively. They have held solo exhibitions at institutions such as Ssamzie Space (Seoul), Amado Art Space/Lab (Seoul), Space Willing N Dealing (Seoul), Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral (Bad Ems, Germany), and many more. They also participated in numerous group exhibitions internationally at prominent institutions such as National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Gwacheon, Korea), Seoul Museum of Art (Buk-Seoul) (Seoul), Art Sonje Center (Seoul), Art Museum (Remagen, Germany), and many more. They recently presented their works at the 12th Gwangju Biennale: Imagined Borders (2018) and received appraisal. They have been a part of residencies such as Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris), MMCA Residency Goyang (Goyang, Korea), SeMA Nanji Residency (Seoul), Helsinki International Artist Programme (Helsinki), and more. Their works are a part of public collections such as Art Bank, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Gwacheon, Korea) and Seoul Museum of Art (Seoul). They are currently living and working in Seoul.
