CR2 (Hee Yuen & Gustav) is pleased to introduce Ok Hyun Ahn, well received Korean contemporary artist based in New York and Seoul. Her long devotion of exploring foundation of human emotion through highly skilled techniques clearly illustrated in her moving images and stills.

In the exhibition LOVE, TEARS, SEDUCTION...(IT’S NOT A MELODRAMA), two bodies of works, MIRROR BALL project and Ma Non Troppo from HOMO SENTIMENTALIS project, are exhibited to highlight the artist’s exploration of viewer’s conscious by provoking emotional senses through embedded visual codes that are often used in mass media. Why human emotion reacts to fabricated images? Where is the boundary between cliché and reality? Is there such a thing as reality after all?

In the era of image drenched culture, the exhibition suggests that human emotion may not innate and natural but manufactured and shaped through highly refined visual codes from mass culture. It is no longer clear if human emotion reside in our conscious is genuine or deceptive.

Ok Hyun Ahn's work has been in numerous solo and group show including museums around the world: Gyeongnam Art Museum in South Korea and Photo Center NW in Seattle. In 2000, she received 2nd Sajin Bipyong (Photography Criticism) Award Prize in Seoul
