Mimi Jung's work examines multiple dimensions of self-preservation, particularly as it relates to private and public self-representation, and the ways in which those depictions are manifest through social and cultural mores. Her constructed forms, with their voids and translucencies, are fixed but never static; the viewer actively controls the experience of transit around and through them—reflecting inward on their own behaviors. In the end, Jung’s limning of space is reflexive, visible to those who are predisposed to see.
Born in 1981 in Seoul, Korea, Mimi Jung studied at Cooper Union and HGK Basel. She has mounted exhibitions at Chamber in New York City, Les Gens Heureux in Copenhagen, Design Miami/ in Miami and Collective Design fair in New York City. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
