Ok Hyun Ahn
Ok-Hyun Ahn is photographer and video artist. She recently exhibited her work in Identity, Costume, Cliche: Korean Photography Today, Photographic Center Northwest, Seattle, 2009 and Artist as Performer, Houston Center for Photography. She was awarded a Ssamzie Studio in Seoul in 2007. She holds MFA degrees from both Hongik University, Seoul, Korea, and the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY.
Her work is an extended meditation on emotion, the depiction of emotion, and the emotions elicited by such depictions. Simultaneously disturbing and seductive, her work hovers between reality and artifice, sentimentality and anguish, the simple and the melodramatic. Deploying a subtle interplay between archetypes of disparate segments of culture
