Shinhye You

Shinhye You constructs fiction that follows the principles of magical realism and translates them into visual forms. The ceramic pieces become evidence of a written story, allowing the allegorical figures to become alive in our world. Intertwined between the allegory and the existing world, Shinhye’s artworks vitalize stories and initiate conversations with the readers and the figures. Shinhye believes clay and its transformation into ceramics have similarities in creating a fictional world with visible words. Through the ceramics that are depicted in the stories, the magic within once again gains life.
