Hyun Parke (Hyun Woo Park) is a virtuosic designer and artist who produces works of art through the use and abuse, as well as subversion of technology and materiality. Through a keen understanding of a wide range of technologies, he deftly manipulates, deconstructs, and reconstructs disparate elements in surprising and unexpected ways.
His recent pursuits involve the purposeful reduction, often even oversimplification of design and fabrication methods. In doing so, he distances himself from the conventional roles of designer and machinist and instead fully embraces a mindset of precarity and ad-hocism in his practice.
His oeuvre of works has been prominently featured in prestigious museums such as the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea (2014) and the permanent exhibition at the Ars Electronica Museum in Linz, Austria(2019~current). In 2018, his artistic achievements were recognized, and he was a selected artist by the Hyundai Motors Zer01ne Creative Platform.
