Introduction
Works
 
 
Gallery Planet introduces a solo exhibition of Choi So-young, who’s known for working with jeans as a main material. This solo exhibition, held for the first time in 9 years since 2010, shows Choi’s deeper thoughts on the surrounding landscape, exploration of the materiality, and the expansion in technique. 

Choi first introduced jeans as a main subject in her work “Bannyeo-dong Cityscape”. She was first drawn by the features of jeans such as its familiarity, unique texture, and fading colors. By using these features, Choi created the landscape that represents the environment she experienced in Busan. Busan is a city where she thinks the cold atmosphere and the warm energy co-exist among the people who live there.

In this solo exhibition, she expanded the landscape she focused on to London and Hong Kong. Also, she showed a change in colors; she used pink and yellow in her new works, and this change reflects the growth of a maturity of herself as an artist. Keeping experimenting on jeans and new environments is connected to her idea to emphasize the strong vitality and colorful faces of nature.

* During the exhibition period, art-writing sets will be presented to the ones who donate used jeans. It is a first come first serve basis (max 100), and the donated jeans will be reborn as works of artist So-young Choi. A portion of the sales of artworks will be donated to support an art education for visually impaired children.
