b.1983, Arlington, Virginia. Lives and works in Seoul, Korea
Candice Joo creates paintings and sculptures of chains to explore notions of individuality, collectivity, and the potential powers in each. Joo’s tensely arranged yet tightly interconnected landscapes of chains are where she reimagines ideas of the empowered self and of collective power. Joo received her BFA from the Parsons School of Design in New York City. Select solo exhibitions have been held at Cheongdam Gallery and Punto Blu in Seoul, Korea. Joo’s work has been featured in group shows at Space Sieon in Jeonju, Korea and Jang Cheon Gallery in Seoul, Korea.
