2022 Parent Artist AIRspace Residents

Yuli Sung

Yuli Sung delves into sacred objects and images that have disappeared or existed from the past to the present, and reconsiders the symbolic meaning they contain from a contemporary point of view. By exploring symbolic images used in various cultures and eras, she visualizes the changing relationship among humans, non-human creatures, materials, and data through video and sculpture work.
