By merging architectural spaces with daily necessities, found objects, and representations of the body, Jiwon Rhie fosters unfamiliar dialogues, emphasizing the tensions and relationships arising from these unique encounters. Conceptual boundaries related to language, race, culture, and nationality are at the core of her work, visualizing their execution in our daily lives.

Jiwon Rhie: “As a project-based artist, I simultaneously engage in multiple bodies of work, each visually distinct, yet united in addressing the themes of adaptation, identity, and boundaries. My art reflects my connection with the environment, encompassing the communities I belong to, the spaces I inhabit, and the people I encounter. This multidisciplinary approach allows me to select materials that effectively express my ideas carefully.”
