Meekyoung Shin

Meekyoung Shin is a London based Korean artist who creates intricate sculpture that often deals with the collision of cultures. On first sight, the work resembles traditional works of ceramics from China; on closer inspection her work is revealed to be fragrant and made from soap, echoing the history, or lack of, the objects she uses as her inspiration. Her work deals fundamentally with appropriated cultural identity and its creation. In 2010 she exhibited in the Memories from the Past, at the LEEUM, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul. She also had a solo exhibition at the Haunch of Venison Gallery London in 2011. In 2012 she exhibited a life-size equestrian sculpture made of soap on an empty plinth in Cavendish Square, London.
