Description

Welcome to the opening of Hyun-Jin Kwak's Girls In Uniform - A Night at the Opera Thursday November 2nd from 4 p.m to 6 p.m at Galleri Image, Vestergade 29.

***

The exhibition at Galleri Image consists of a selection of works from 2006 to 2017. The latest are a result of Kwak’s residency within the FRESH EYES project in Aarhus. This also includes three large works which are on display on a public building next to the gallery. Altogether, the selection shows how Girls In Uniform has developed into studies of settings where historical and architectural aspects carry increasing importance. The method of staging models in different environments, thus suggesting different narratives, has for the artist become a reflective tool to look at and investigate places. Or as she states: “The uniformed girl somehow came to represent my own foreign perspective and placement and displacement in different geographies and localities of the West.”

Hyun-Jin Kwak (b. 1974 in South Korea) lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. She works primarily with staged photography and thematic approaches to geographical sites. Kwak’s works have been shown both in group and solo exhibitions at several major European exhibition spaces such as Hasselblad Center, Art Pavilion Zagreb, Technopolis Athens, Kulturhuset Stockholm, and Platform Seoul. Kwak has been nominated for several European photography awards including Prix Pictet and Prix Virginia. In 2005 Kwak was awarded the Hasselblad Foundation Victor Fellowship.
