The 17th Hermès Foundation Missulsang, Oh Min solo exhibition <Étude>
Period: 16th September – 4th November, 2018
Atelier Hermès presented <Étude>, the solo exhibition of Oh Min, the 17th laureate of Hermès Foundation Missulsang, from 6th September to 4th November, 2018. “Étude” is the French equivalent of “Study” widely adopted for fairly short pieces whose principal aim is the development or exploitation of a particular aspect of a performance technique, such as in Chopin’s <Études op.25>. Inspired by this idea of an “Étude” Oh Min conceived and produced a new project, <Étude ABCD>, that consists of two single-channel videos, <Étude A> and <Étude C> (10 min. each), a 5-channel video <Étude B> (2 min.) and a live performance <Étude D> (10min.).
Oh Min received bachelor’s degrees in piano performance (1998) and graphic design (2000) from Seoul National University, Seoul, and her MFA (2008) from Yale University, New Haven. Her work has been exhibited at Daegu Art Museum (Daegu, 2017), Doosan Gallery (New York, 2017, and Seoul, 2016), Arko Art Center (Seoul, 2016), Kukje Gallery (Seoul, 2016), Nam June Paik Art Center (Yongin, 2015), National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (Gwacheon, 2014), Nederlandsche Bank Gallery (Amsterdam, 2012), and Kunsthalle Erfurt (2011). Oh Min held a residency at Cité Internationale des Arts, which was funded by the Samsung Foundation (2014– 15), and at Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (2011–12), and won the Sindoh Artist Support Program (2016) and the 6th Doosan Artist Award (2015).
