Blank and Cold Coffee Corner

In Kyoung Chun

Blank and Cold Coffee Corner offers a brief glimpse into In Kyoung Chun’s daily life in and around her studio. The installation loosely expresses the artist’s activities, such as eating, talking, reading, making, and even doing nothing, taking place in this private corner.

The corner is an essential space where In Kyoung can process her thoughts, behaviors, and events in a natural and intimate way. Using visual cues from the drawings and sculptures, this installation seeks to share the energy and meaning that the corner provides to In Kyoung, who, in turn, wants to share with her audience.
