Hyunjung Rhee 2.jpg

Hyunjung Rhee (b.1992) is an artist based in US and Republic of Korea. She attended Konkuk University and received her Bachelor's of Fine Art, specializing in Contemporary Arts in February of 2014. She graduated with a MFA in New Forms from Pratt Institute. Her multi-media installation work and performance examine glitches in the communication system and the transmission space, which is complex, imperfect, volatile, and distorted. The material used and specifically made for the installations, such as receipt printers, music boxes, and stepper motors, that are the elements for kinetic sculptures, continuously generate ever-changing metaphors touching on the sense of impossibility. Hyunjung Rhee currently lives and works in New York.
