Mimi Joung, originally from Korea, gained her Masters in Ceramics and Art from the Royal College of Art. Much of Mimi’s works are installation and situation/relational projects. They are suggestive of landscapes and stories, combining clay or glass sometimes bundled together with mundane, found materials such as elastic bands, knitting wool, silk thread, a needle box, objects found in charity shops, the natural environment or through people and conversations. She focuses her work on issues of “Displacement”, with objects addressing a wider discourse, beyond origin and usage, to reference human situations and experience. She is a long way from home and the important influences there and has become a commentator, observer and historian reflecting the important cycle of roots and change.
