Description

My artistic process begins with a perception of surroundings. Underneath the visible world, I often discover unnoticeable elements and try to illuminate them by creating books and installations. Things that looked like nothing take on a presence suggesting something subtle and ineffable within the rational and logical contemporary world. The flipbook, de, explores the quality a book can possess beyond being a physical container of printed texts and images. The book moves towards a positive ending.

Kunyoung Chang is a book and paper artist living in Seoul, South Korea. She earned her BFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA in Book Arts / Printmaking from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She explores the book as a metaphoric medium using various materials including handmade paper. Her books and installations have been part of many national and international art exhibitions.
