Lee-Bauwens gallery is pleased to welcome Meekyoung Shin for her first solo show at the gallery

Born in 1967 in Seoul, South Korea, the artist Meekyoung Shin lives and works between London and Seoul.

For his first solo exhibition at the Lee-Bauwens Gallery, the artist Meekyoung Shin invites us to take part in another world. Here, time stands still, the spectators plunge into a world inhabited by ghosts with reconstructions of objects inscribed in time, sometimes petrified, strikingly realistic.

Made from soap, her works replicate artefacts and canonical works of art, from Asian porcelain vases to Greek and Roman sculptures, translating between continents, cultures and centuries in the process.

The works of Meekyoung Shin with its thousand and one details appear in a suspended time like an imprint that our dreamy glance contributes to dilate further and gives us to read another image of the past.

Meekyoung Shin was born in South Korea and completed her BFA and MFA at Seoul National University. In 1995, she moved to London to obtain her MFA at the Slade School of Art, University College London, and has since held solo exhibitions internationally including at Haunch of Venison, London (2010) and Arko Art Center , Seoul (2018). She has participated in numerous group shows including at the Museum of Art and Design, New York, and the 2013 Asian Art Biennial in Taiwan and recently at the National Museum , New York, Stockholm (2020)

Her works are found in collections all over the world, including the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea. Meekyoung Shin was nominated for the Korea Artist Prize 2013.
