In her works Hyun-Jin Kwak examines the issues of culture and sense of belonging. These fabricated moments depict rituals of acceptance, things that girls do to be part of the sisterhood. Presented in dramatic fashion, these images elucidate the fragility of humans, seeking affirmation from others.

The F Blog interviewed her in January with a good selection of her works.
