Hayoun KWON

Hayoun KWON was born in Seoul (South Korea) in 1981. She first studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Nantes, and then graduated from the Fresnoy – Studio national des Arts contemporains in 2011. Her work revolves mostly around the notions of memory (wether individual or collective), boundaries and limits, questionning the blurred lines between intention and interpretation, construction and fiction, recollection and invention. She examines the ambivalent relationships between reality and fiction.
