The foundation of my works start from thinking of struggles in my own life. Whether an incident or daily encounters, hardships spread their roots in one’s life and become part of the person. My interests lay in manipulating the form of an object to narrate these psychological states. This play with mundane objects brings an irony that breaks the culturally learnt norm, allowing the experience of day-to-day struggle; seemingly trivial, yet obtrusive. Through these, my works intend to not only console myself by sharing my own memories, but also the audience by creating an environment that acknowledges that struggle is an idea co-existing amongst everyone. –Yunhee Min
