Contemporary Art in Korean Tradition

Suki Seokyeong Kang’s practice traverses painting, sculpture, installation, as well as video and performance to explore the interplay between the individual and the collective. By developing an artistic vocabulary that draws from the rich heritage of Korean painting, poetry and dance, Kang’s oeuvre examines the durability of traditions and expands their significance to contemporary art. The catalog, accompanying her solo exhibition Willow Drum Oriole at Leeum Museum of Art, proposes to read Kang’s practice through a range of varying discourses, such as the status of traditional Korean painting in contemporary art, feminism, and the narratives of the Western avant-garde. Taking the artist’s foundational painting practice as a point of departure, the catalog features a new body of work and charts the development of Kang’s artistic language.

Based in Seoul, SUKI SEOKYEONG KANG (*1977) studied Painting at Ewha Womans University in Seoul and at London’s Royal College of Art. In 2018, Kang won the Baloise Art Prize at Art Basel. She has had solo exhibitions at Buk-Seoul Museum of Art (2019-2020), MUDAM Luxembourg (2018), ICA Philadelphia (2018) and her works have been featured in group exhibitions at MCA Chicago (2021), the Venice Biennale (2019), the Shanghai Biennale (2018), the Gwangju Biennale (2018), and the Liverpool Biennial (2018).
