YoonMi Nam
MOMENTARILY
September 16, 2016 – October 29, 2016Opening, September 16, PLUG Projects presents Momentarily, a solo exhibition featuring the work of Yoonmi Nam. In response to the ever-changing parade of disposable objects we encounter on a daily basis, Momentarily presents works made from cast glass, porcelain, and paper that contend with contradictory senses of time through materiality and image.
Yoonmi Nam was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, spending part of her youth in Canada.  She received a B.F.A. degree in Printmaking from Hongik University in Seoul, Korea.  She moved to America to study at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a M.F.A. degree in Painting and Printmaking in 2000.  Her work considers the cross-cultural experience and sense of transience throu­gh prints, installations and drawings.  Nam uses images of man-made environments and the culture of cut flower arrangements as metaphors to evoke a sense of time that is both fleeting and eternal.  Currently, she is an Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Art at the University of Kansas.
