Inwhan Oh was born in Seoul, where he currently lives and works. His experimental and conceptual artwork and participatory projects draw on the contexts of particular space and time, based on his interest in social and cultural issues. Based on his personal experiences, Oh translates or dismantles the cultural code formed in the connective context of relationship between individual identity and collectiveness within the patriarchal society. With this, he also proceeds on with concrete and practical works pertinent to the daily experiences implanted with keywords of the contemporary art including, difference, variety, communication and more. He has participated in various artist-in-residency programs such as Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, and Kyoto Art Center/Kyoto city University of Arts. He is winner of the Korea Artists Prize.Read More
