Artist Hyemin Son is mainly working with photographs, videos, and installations. Son’s work explores especially interrelationship between everyday life, action and the imaginary predominantly located in the realm of cityscape. In a playful manner, Son constructs a form of gatherings, performances and happenings within a specific urban situation. Often the events create tensions and ruptures between an artists’ intention and the situation.
