Ongoing by IN YEONGHYE
I use a chair as the medium for projecting myself and expressing my story. Although I have been hiding my feelings to others and myself, I started to focus on my feelings, thoughts, and story after keeping a diary. Then, I designed a chair with the feelings and stories I wrote in my diary.
So, my chair is the ‘canvas reflecting myself’ and ‘my self-portrait’.
‘Onging_1,2’ is the outcome of the time when I thought about and inquired myself as an artist. ‘Ongoing_1,2’ started from a sentence from my diary saying ‘I wish I had a sense of absorbing inspiration’ and the work reflects my wish of making a shape for stimulating inspiration and curiosity for making an artwork.
I hope my chair to become a medium which inspires myself and others.
