She is an artist from Seoul, Korea and currently working in the Los Angeles area. After she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a graduate degree in fine art, different public receptions of her work between East and West, and her position as an outsider in both cultures encourage her wants to explore the cultural, rational and linguistic discrepancy between two different cultures. As a performance artist, sculptor, multi media artist, and global citizen, she uses various symbolic props and playful banality of everyday objects to investigate social developments, structures, and what happens when people encounter inverted social conventions: the normal becoming strange, the fair becoming unfair, white becoming gray . Kwon’s performance often invites the audience to participate in familiar social activities while her actions occupy spaces of non-communicative engagement.
