Cotton, dyed with ink
Cha, Yun Sook creates her artworks as a way of paying homage to Nature.
Aware of our civilization’s disregard for Nature, Cha expresses her gratitude to Nature through the mark making process of ink on Hanji paper and textile.
She also celebrates Nature through performance by dressing others in clothes dyed with ink imbued with healing properties meant to lift the wearer’s spirit. In her performance piece, Cha cuts, folds and sews pieces of fabric to drape over a model to complete a one-of-a-kind piece.
She will interact with audience members by sharing strips of fabric that can be worn or carried as a reminder of our connection to the natural world.
