Bio

Yeonjoo Cho (b. 1991) is a Korean-born visual artist and researcher based in Glasgow, United Kingdom. Her work explores the intersection of cultural boundaries, challenging the binary categorisation of 'Oriental' and Western painting. With a focus on narratives of women and cultural others, Cho has depicted landscapes as spaces which allow her reality and wishes to encounter and overlap. 

Cho studied painting and art history at Ewha Womans University and completed her doctorate through practice-based research at the Glasgow School of Art. Her work has been exhibited in various cities in the UK and South Korea, including institutions such as the Scottish Royal Academy, Edinburgh City Art Centre, Cambridge University, Cheongju Creative Art Studio, Uijeongbu Art Centre, and SeMA, Buk Seoul Museum of Art.

작가이력

조연주 (b. 1991)는 영국 글래스고에 거주하는 한국 태생의 시각 예술가이자 연구자이다. 그녀의 작품은 '동양화'와 서양화의 이분법적 분류에 도전하면서 문화적 경계의 교차점을 탐구한다. 문화적 타자와 혼성체의 서사에 초점을 맞추면서, 조연주는 풍경을 자신의 현실과 소망이 만나고 중첩되는 공간으로 그려왔다. 조연주는 이화여자대학교에서 회화와 미술사를 전공하고 글래스고 예술대학에서 실무 중심의 연구로 박사학위를 받았다. 그녀의 작품은 스코틀랜드 왕립 아카데미, 에든버러 시티 아트 센터, 케임브리지 대학, 청주 창작 예술 스튜디오, 의정부 아트 센터, 서울시립 북서울미술관 등 영국과 한국의 여러 도시에서 전시되었다.
