Open day- InYoung Yeo
18 February 2016 I Utsha Foundation For Contemporary Art
Our first resident artist for 2017, InYoung Yeo, spent 2 weeks researching her project in Bhubaneswar, Cuttack and surrounding areas. For her project titled - 'Three-way dialogue' - she chose Hamburg (Germany), Seoul (Korea) and Bhubaneswar, (India) to conduct approximately 45-person interviews in public and private space of each city and community. The interviews reflected the parallels of how each city is going through different degrees of changes from a multiple point of views. The project intends to showcase these three cities at the Seoul Biennale.
