Hayoun Kwon

The Bird Lady
From 14/06/2017 to 10/09/2017

Winner of the Prix Découverte des Amis du Palais de Tokyo 2015

Thanks to a recollection that Daniel, a former drawing teacher, told her one day, Hayoun Kwon is offering us access to the imaginary world of a mysterious woman, nicknamed “The Bird Lady”.

Several of Hayoun Kwon’s pieces are linked to geopolitical questions of borders and territoriality. For example, the projects Model Village (2014) or 489 Years (2015), which she conceived as allusions to the no man’s land that separates the two Koreas, and Lack of Evidence (2011), a short film presenting the tale of a young asylum seeker from Nigeria confronted with the French administration. By regularly mixing in her work a documentary approach with the techniques of animated movies and new technologies, Hayoun Kwon interweaves facts and fiction, reality and virtuality, to question the complexity of the “real”.

Curator: Katell Jaffrès
