'Dream Journey' 

A record of imaginary journeys which ended up getting lost.

'Dream Journey'



Dream journey is a series of Cho's early works that represent a quest for a place she cannot reach, the heterotopic place between her dreams and reality. 

"I want to stay in the world of landscape, but the conditions of my life do not leave me in the nostalgia of the past.

Urban life, globalization, frequent physical movements, my identity as a Korean woman, and the subsequent problems and anxieties keep me away from the world I am dreaming of.

After all, my painting is a record of the discrepancies and frictions between the world that I am aiming for and the world that I belong to, as well as a result of my efforts to understand and resolve them.”
