The Hanmi Gallrey is showing the work of the leading Korean artist Sungfeel Yung, who now lives and works in London, at Art 14. In parallel, the gallery is supporting a panel discussion on Korean art on the global stage during the fair. Sungfeel Yung is an innovative artist, who combines science and art, is well-represented in Korea and deserves to be known more widely to an international audience, given the quality of his work.
Sungfeel Yun studied at Goldsmiths College, London and the Slade School of Fine Art. In 2012 he was selected as a winner from Pyo gallery and Zaha museum in Seoul. Sungfeel was one the 10 finalists in the 2013 National Sculpture Prize Exhibition in the UK. His work is elegant, geometrical and kinetic, often combining moving elements within it and has synergies with the work of Anish Kapoor.
‘My work is about the nature of existence, as explored and explained by Eastern philosophies and the theories of universal physics. The vast expanse of the solar system and the micro world of atoms have something in common; both worlds rotate around the same axis.’ – Sungfeel Yun.
