Yoonshin Park

Passing hours, space in between, I am breathing your air

Solo Exhibition - Cultivator at Bray Grove Farm

Sunday, September 19, 2021, 2-5pm

Cultivator is pleased to present Yoonshin Park's solo exhibition, Passing hours, space in between, I am breathing your air, during Bray Grove Farm's Autumn Farm Day.

Please rsvp and join us on Sunday, September 19th from 2-5pm for art, conversation, light refreshments, and a tour of the farm. Bray Grove Farm is located 70 miles southwest of Chicago in Grundy County. To confirm your attendance and receive directions and parking information, kindly email.

Passing hours, space in between, I am breathing your air, is a site specific installation. Park's delicate paper pillows slowly breathe, with the light and shadows creating a eerie and timely mood of reflection. The artist describes previous installations of this sculpture as "transient, temporary, and vulnerable." With this exhibition during the current pandemic, the piece takes on additional meanings as the viewers are required to be masked and physically distanced in our farm equipment garage .

Yoonshin Park is a Chicago based multimedia artist, curator, and educator working with sculptural papers, artist books, and installations. Her interest in the comprehensive process of papermaking and bookbinding caters her work to encompass various elements woven into complete objects. Born in Seoul, Korea, she often uses her experience as a foreign transplant to question space and its implications in defining one's identity as the inspiration behind her work.

Park has shown at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, Hyde Park Art Center, Bridgeport Art Center, and Art on Armitage in Chicago. She has also exhibited at Flex Space at the Riverside Art Center, Pablo Center and the AIR SPACE at Saint Kate Hotel in Wisconsin, Simyo Gallery in Seoul, Korea among other venues. Her curatorial projects were at Adds Donna, Blink Contemporary, and Woman Made Gallery.

She received her M.A. and M.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts from Columbia College Chicago. Her work has been reviewed in the June issue of Sculpture Magazine in 2019. She currently teaches at Hyde Park Art Center and Evanston Art Center.
