Minja Gu

Minja Gu (b. 1977, Korea) lives and works in Seoul. Her works appear frail and intimate, and almost indistinguishable from everyday life. Gu is predominately interested in what society uses and then discards. She recycles back into presence and with grace, wit and poetry the many supposedly valueless remnants of daily consumerism, such as leftover coffee cups or plastic bags.

Minja Gu’s solo exhibitions have been Identical Times, Croft Gallery, Seoul, Korea, (2009) and Atlantic-Pacific co., Moore Street Market, New York, NY, USA (2011). She has also participated with her work in the group exhibitions Trading Futures, Taipei Contemporary Art Center, Taipei, Taiwan (2012); Doing, Kumho Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea (2012); The 10th SongEun Art Award Show, SongEun Art Space, Seoul, Korea (2011); Open Studio, International Studio & Curatorial Program, New York, NY, USA (2011); Life, No Peace, Only Adventure, Busan Museum of Art, Busan, Korea (2011); The 10th Seoul International New Media Festival – Seoul space, Korea (2010), among others.
