Oh Inhwan

Oh Inhwan was born in 1965 in Seoul, where he continues to reside. His experimental and conceptual artwork and participatory projects draw on the contexts of particular spaces and times, based on his interest in social and cultural problems. Utilizing his own experiences, his process-driven work translates and deconstructs the relationship between individual identity and groups within patriarchal societies, as well as the cultural codes that are shaped by this. His recent major solo exhibitions include “Looking out for blind spots” (Space Willing N Dealing, Gallery Factory, Seoul, 2014). His major group exhibitions include “A Room of His Own: Masculinities in Korea and the Middle East” (Art Sonje Center, Seoul, 2014) and the Aichi Triennale 2010. He participated in a joint Kyoto Art Center and Kyoto City University of Arts artist-in-residence program in 2011. His awards include the Korea Artists Prize 2015.
