Coming up on September 19th, fans in Los Angeles will have a rare opportunity to see a selection of works from Jin Young Yu (interviewed) stateside at Art Merge Lab, a popup project in Downtown LA. Utilizing her signature technique of working with transparent plastic, the Korean artist creates life-size individuals (sometimes including their families and pets) while playing with ideas of identity and the tensions between our outward appearances and how we really feel inside. While this was the focus of her Me & Myself series of works, attendees will also see a transition to her more recent series Me & Them that deal with inner struggles. The more than 20 pieces will be on display through October 17th with the show collectively entitled Myself / Them.
