Artist Statement
The extraordinary power of objects is obtained, because people believe in them. The more mundane the objects are, the more powerful they become. 
My practice contextualizes the primitive energy that is submerged beneath the layers of garments. When the body is removed, the absence becomes an empty structure. The internal structure is evidence of human existence. It remains full of authentic spirit and fantasy. 
Through the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing materials into symbolic forms, I uncover the hidden intimate and sensual power of humanity. It is a moment when ordinary objects become surreal and uncanny in order to redeem the socially constructed expectations and perceptions.

She just had an exhibition, Unexpected, since  NOV 24th 2016  at Craft Council of British Columbia‎ Gallery, 1386 Cartwright Street, Granville Island; Vancouver V6H 3R8 – An Exhibition by the Vancouver Metal Arts Association

Unexpected explores the strange and sometimes discordant elements that make the viewing, wearing, and making of Contemporary Jewellery an enjoyable endeavor.
The unexpected and Contemporary Art Jewellery are by no means strange bedfellows- viewers and wearers of Contemporary Jewellery often seek out our discipline because it is unusual and extra-ordinary. The unusual, and unusual elements and materials, have become de rigueur in a creative world that continues to embrace post-disciplinary art practices which move beyond medium centered approaches to making.
Participating artists: Lydia Buxton — Melissa Cameron — Bridget Catchpole — Barbara Cohen — Jennifer Crupi – Yoshie Hattori — Kyri Hinkleman — Holland Houdek — Karin Jones — Joshua Kosker — Matt Lambert — Andy Lowrie – Jacqueline Lung — Brooke Marks-Swanson –  Sharon Massey — Louise Perrone- – Lissy Selvius — Jina SeoAric Verrastro — Kari Woo — Lawrence Woodford.

Jina Seo

Des objets très sombres, très tactiles -comme de la peau, mais quelle peau exactement ?- et donnant envie de la toucher, tâter, soupeser …., très « à double sens », IN or OUT -visions extérieures d’un corps, ou intérieures ?-, vus/vues du dedans ou du dehors ? comme ces gants qu’on retourne … d’ailleurs faits à partir de gants de cuir « vintages », retaillés, recoupés, recousus, ils ont la tactilité du cuir -sa souplesse, son  moelleux-, de la peau …. peau humaine, muqueuse(s), ou « juste » cuir ???
Jina Seo se joue de tous ces sens, dans le « bon sens », à « double sens », en « contresens », contre, tout contre, les sens …. comme avec innocence - »inno-sens »-, « l’innocence » de ces jeunes japonaises déguisées en baby-doll de mangas, avec ironie, tout est « comme si de rien n’était », mais tout est bien là ! Tout, du corps humain bien sûr.
