AboutSongs for Presidents is very pleased to announce Yunmee Kyong’s solo exhibition Matter of Belief, curated by Claire Falkenberg. Through sculptures, paintings, and textile wall pieces, Kyong conjures a curious world of inquiry and objects, faith and realism. With paper-pulp covered fruits, quilted fabric shapes, and narrative paintings, Kyong’s work exists in a realm that is neither real nor fictional, while continually pointing to the ambiguous space between the every-day and the mystical.
Yunmee Kyong received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Exhibitions include Insa Art Center (Korea), Metaphor Gallery (Brooklyn), International Print Center New York (New York), Philagrafika (Philadelphia), Flux Factory (New York), ISE Foundation (New York), Waiting Room (Japan), and 18 Gallery (China). Residencies include The Lower East Side Print Shop Key Holder Residency (2011), The Gowanus Studio Space Printshop Residency (2012), Vermont Studio Center (2012), and Centre d’Art Marnay Art Centre Residency (2007). Yunmee Kyong lives and works in Peekskill, NY.
