Jeemin Jamie Chung (South Korea, 1983 -one of her jewels on the pic.), JOYA Award winner 2015.
Her collection “Two drops” was the winner of the last edition of JOYA, she was selected over 50 individual artists. Jamie has a background of living in diverse cultures where her inspiration comes from. She graduated from Kookmin University, M.F.A Metalwork & Jewelry / Seoul, Korea in 2010.) She currently runs a studio in Seoul, Korea.
This year she is the invited artist of JOYA, and will present her second experimental work “Presence” a talk about the presence through different forms, where presence and existence are something that is not realized unless revealing itself. AND has this solo exhibition at Amarantojoies!
« The idea is to let my audience to think of the theme Presence once in their life/me, about why and how things exists. »
« My works can be defined from the interests and the background of my life with constant new meetings, farewells, and adapting to diverse cultures.
I like to create and show my beliefs and values throughout my work. In my previous works I have expressed nature, in particular the form and structural changes as a plant grows, into movable Art Jewelry.
With the same context and interests I have changed my approach to the works I create. I have been focusing on improvising the ideas of presence into my Art Jewelry. The works I wanted to present is a reflection of me partly revealing the moments of my life… »
« One day, an idea had made me curious, curious about the existence of the nonexistent. The nonexistent form that can be translated into my own way by giving boundaries to irregular changes. This theme has challenged me to express my way of thinking. I was fascinated by the existence of the invisibleness. It clearly does not show the existence itself, but it reveals through other forms.
This exhibition will be the first step in my way of showing the invisibleness. I will continuously think and question myself about this theme, which will lead to my next series in the future.
Now, I would like to ask my audience, have you thought about the existence of the nonexistent? »
