Waxing and Waning @SPACE SO, SEOUL
with works by Seong Yeon JO
(Korean, born 1971)
Seong Yeon JO has created her series Sprout since 2011, a collection of photographs that depicts everyday objects that may appear insignificant such as weeds or flowers. The artist proposes looking at nature from the point of view of harmony and coexistence, allowing ourselves to be fully situated in the natural environment for a more meaningful existence. Additionally, she collects and grows the seeds herself to use as a visual source, rather than finding pre-existing plants to document.
