Add to Calendar
Yoon-Young Hur is an architect and a ceramist based in Seoul and New York. She moves back and forth between the two cities and works on limited ceramic editions with unique clays and glazes from the U.S. and S. Korea. As a person who thinks with her hands and is obsessed with tactile and versatile matter, clay became a perfect medium for her intuitive and experimental work.
All hand built and wheel thrown by her, the first collection made in Seoul during 2017-18 is a mixture of vessels and abstract forms. Her inspirations for the vessels stem from traditional Korean ceramics and contemporary sculptures. The abstract works titled “Landscape”, “Stratum”, “Artifact” and “Clay Drawing” are explorative series on materiality and composition.
Upon receiving architecture and fine arts degrees from The Cooper Union and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she led a wide range of cultural, institutional, residential, and master planning projects at Matthew Baird Architects, Diller Scofidio & Renfro and Agrest and Gandelsonas Architects in New York City.
