Curator's Eye

By uniting the surreal and the mundane, Cha Min-Young’s work is inhabited by both the familiar and the extraordinary. Min-Young offers an insight into an alternate reality; one that is ever-present just beyond the boundaries of our own known existence. Encouraging the viewer to look beyond what first meets the eye, she injects uncanny pockets of life into found objects that would otherwise be overlooked and invisible - ultimately allowing the viewer to question their perception of life beyond their own. A big hit when she showed at START Art Fair at the Saatchi Gallery.

Adding to cart… The item has been added

It is a work in which elements of ventilation are placed in a closed and dense urban space.

The shutter, which hides and defends the interior space from the outside, clearly reveals the closedness of the urban space. However, in the interior space seen through the gap of the lower shutter, you can hear the green trees swaying in the wind and the clear sound of birds through the small window.
