JaYoung Yoon (Fiber ’09) will open the solo exhibition Seeing the Threshold: Jayoung Yoon at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles on October 19. 2018. The exhibition will run through January 13, 2019.
Born in Korea, Jayoung Yoon is a New York-based artist known for using human hair in her art. She focuses on using hair as a medium for exploring systems of thought, perception and sensations of the body. Her use of hair connects the viewer’s visual perception of the work to the physical form of the body. Her creations of 2-dimensional work, of both woven forms and geometric shapes, represent the limbo between conscious and unconscious states.
