Min-Young Her is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Ōtautahi. She is a recent BFA Sculpture graduate of the Ilam School of Fine Art, University of Canterbury. Her work has a clarity, focus and proficiency that demands attention. She works with fabrics to construct sculptural forms that can – through wearing – spark a unique dialogue between previously disconnected groups. Her art can also be encountered through installations, and via video performance. While the performative action is key, the heart of her work is found in her incredibly imaginative and beautifully crafted sculptural works. Min-Young is at an early stage of her career, but has already carved out her own place in the industry. We are very excited to where her experiences as a Springboard Awardee take her.
