EMOTION EXPRESSION, EXPRESSIVE EMOTION
WOO JUNG KOH, TOM AND MARGIE POZEFSKY FELLOW, 2016-17
Woo jung KOH was born and raised in Korea. Koh's work focuses on the relationship between modern society and her emotional state, while thinking about the inner psychological aspects through facial expressions, gestures, staging and disfigurement. While focusing on the self-portrait and expressions, she went through different states of coexistence, process, isolation and reflecting on self-portraits of emotions through her past works, which became an important process to her current work.
Koh enjoys observing body language and facial expressions and this has become enhanced since living in a foreign country. This has caused her to think more about expression and is found as the main subject in her current body of work, including faces and bodies as the key elements of expression.
TOPOS OUTOPOS: ILLEGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM
Emily Irvin's work focuses on the ritual actions and mundane objects involved in caring for the body, in an effort to highlight the purification and healing capacities of bodily care. She explores care by breaking down its binaries and observes care occurring in positive terms as comfort and support, and in negative terms as constriction and stress.
Irvin's creation of multiple similar objects and actions has led her to understand that observing subtleties and nuances informs her process of exploring, expanding, and breaking down the ecology of care.
