Chul Hyun AHN (안철현) Artist Biography

Artist Statement


I am interested in space and transitions between spaces. I try to explore and discover this space by creating my work and researching the idea. My project is to create physical representations of this kind of fantasy space, and provide an environment in which to contemplate the bound/boundlessness of humanities ability for physical and spiritual travel. In my work, I also deal with certain questions pertaining to this space: how much information can we get through experience, exploration and experimentation?
