Jin Heewoong is a Korean visual artist based in Seoul and Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang/Montréal. He has experimented with different processes of discovering combinations of various objects that can be found from our surroundings (e.g. found objects, ready-made, industrial material, etc.). By producing variations in arrangement of his objects, Jin’s work generates new meanings with them by creating order and/or chaos within his object combinations which often reveal the aesthetic elements inherent in the used objects. Recently, he started to expand his practice in video by combining personal text and footage that explores the subtle nuances of his experience of displacement.


Jin heewoong(born in 1985 in Korea) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Seoul and Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Graduated from Cheongju University with a Bachelor's in Painting. He received a graduate degree in Painting from the same university and pursuing his MFA program in Concordia in the sculpture department. He has been presented/will be presented at Centre Mai (CAN, 2023), Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto (CAN, 2022), Ignition at Leonard & Bina Art Gallery (CAN, 2022), Peripheral Hours, Tiohtià:ke/Montreal (CAN, 2019) and Real DMZ project, Art Sonje Center (KOR, 2015), Cheongju International Craft biennale 2017 (KOR).
