Heejung Cho is a sculptor and printmaking artist born in Seoul, Korea. For Jamaica Flux 2021, the artist will create a large-scale, perspectival urban landscape print depicting Jamaica’s diverse ecosystem, collaged from multicolored woodblock prints. As a Korean immigrant, the integration and friction between boundaries, places, people and cultures are the essence of what Cho aims to capture in her practice, which further explores notions of identity, memory and home.
Cho has participated in residency programs at the Museum of Arts and Design, Newark Museum, AIM program of the Bronx Museum of Arts, the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts and IAP program at the New York Foundation for the Arts. Her prints have been developed over the last five years through participating in the Keyholder program of Lower East Side Printshop, SIP fellowship of Robert Blackburn Printmaking and she will participate in the residency program at the Women's Studio Workshop in 2021.
