I have majored in Scenography in Kaywon School of Art and Design in South Korea, which focuses on creating a space or a stage in a concept of narratives.
When I have converted to Islam and have begun a new life in an Arab country, I started to think of my identity and existence as a Korean Muslim woman. It provided me the opportunity to study and discover that the cultures between my root and my religion have something in common. My attempt is to combine these two traditional cultures together in a harmonious and stable context where they become one beautiful piece.
My intention is for my work to reveal the process highlighting cultural commonalities between the Islamic religion and the Korean custom. I want to represent how beautiful and natural to see Islamic materials in Korean tradition like the precedent, Islam was remained in other countries. And I hope my artwork can give a beautiful image of Korean tradition to foreigners and know that there are Korean Muslims who have been keeping the root with the religion.
