Artist shows a refined side of rot
They are the works of Yoon Jin-young, who won the 37th JoongAng Fine Arts Prize. An exhibition featuring Yoon and the other nine finalists for the annual art prize granted by the JoongAng Ilbo is ongoing at the museum.
Yoon, who studied biology and then photography, said her work shows not only death and decay but also the vitality of the mold, illustrating the co-existence of death and life.
