Meet the Artist // Mimi Youn

Mimi Youn studied photography in the Sang Myung University and Media in the University College London. She employs photographs as a tool to explore the relationships between time, memory and spaces.

She has been interested in materiality of photograph and she creates distorted, erased and modified memory using photographs that she has collected. For her project at GlogauAIR she collected old vintage photographs and postcards of Berlin during Germany’s division period, making collages that she later on presented in a video format.

Her aim is to make an extension of time, space and memories from the past and to look beyond what we see and experience.
