Let us tell you a bit more about our current artist South Korean Paris based AHN SUN MI.
Ahn Sun Mi was born in 1982 in Busan, South Korea. She discovered photography at the age of 15 and committed to photography studies in 2001 at Kyung Sung University. Sun Mi left Korea for France in 2004 to pursue her studies at Academy of Fine Arts Paris – Cergy.
A sold out exhibition at AAF in Paris has been followed by multiple exhibitions and art fair appearances in France, England, Switzerland, and Belgium, as well as China, South Korea, and Singapore.
Ahn Sun Mi was awarded one of the top ten photographers in France 2013. Her work has been featured at leading art forums including Carrousel de Louvre, Grand Palais as well as Art Stage Singapore and Korea International Art Fair (KIAF) in Seoul.
The transission to France has had a great impact on her work. Arriving in France she started to use photography as a way to investigate her identity and the distance between her inner self and her appearance. Her work became an artistic laboratory where she questioned life and caught up with time. A constant communication with a child, afraid of leaving the haven of childhood, passing a gap to discover its femininity – her work can be described as surrealistic self portraits between childhood and sensuality.
AHN SUN MI’s US debut the solo exhibition MULTIFACETED runs through Junde 14th.
