BAHC Heeza studied Photography at the Seoul Institute of the Arts, and Sculpture at the Korea National University of Arts. The artist has pursues the meaning and value of art through the work. As a photographer, the artist records the space of the work’s creation, and through the installation, she unravels its interpretations. In addition to her solo exhibitions 《Leaving Independent》 (Space keuk, 2018) and 《Double Exposure》 (SongEun ArtCube, 2019), the artist has also participated in many group exhibitions. She is a recipient of the 15th Sajin Bipyong (Photography Criticism) Award (2014), the 9th artist of the year for the KT&G Sangsangmadang SKOPF (2016), and is the 11th Public Art New Hero (2017).
At the Incheon Art Platform, the artist is planning to collaborate with performers. Gestures that utilize objects during the creative process will be recorded. The performer (practitioner)’s movements, which utilize the body in an improvised manner in response to the objects, repeat actions that look absurd and meaningless from a logical standpoint. Through this movement of the moment that is out of the context of ‘sanity’ or ‘logic’, the artist expects to gain insight into the creative process of artists who produce meaning or meaninglessness.
