London-based Contemporary Korean multidisciplinary artist Bongsu Park’s work explores the relationship between new media and traditional art practices such as sculpture, installation, video and performance. Her recent work is founded on how our innermost thoughts may connect with other people’s and how these can be shared publicly. Bongsu has developed an ongoing practice exploring Korean dream culture since 2017 including Dream Ritual(2019), Dreamers’ Gathering(2021) and Dream Auction(2021).
Bongsu Park (b.1981, Busan) lives and works in London and South Korea. Park studied at the Slade School of Fine Arts, UK and at l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, France. She has exhibited internationally including Zona Maco Arte Contemporáneo-Sample, FIAC-cinéphémère, The Moving Image Istanbul, Barcelona LOOP, Gyungnam Art Museum in Changwon, South Korea and her performance work showed at Camden Arts Centre, Gallery Rosenfeld and The Coronet Theatre in London. Her work finds its roots in the philosophy of her homeland South Korea and brings this into the context of contemporary western society./What unifies her work is a sustained and developing interest in the cycle of life: the fundamental questions of birth and death, growth and decay.
