Juhyun & Ken

Juhyun Choi   JUHYUN CHOI: South Korea

Author and artist Juhyun Choi uses images to tell stories in which dreams and memories are intermingled. She has published in various anthologies (Stripburger, Patate Douce, Le nouveau journal de Judith et Marinette, 40075km) and self-published several books (Halme, Mains, Cache). The same themes developed in her books also appear in her installations and shadow-theatre creations (notably at the festival City of Women in Ljubljana in October 2005 and for the festival Journée des femmes in Poitiers). Juhyun was born in Gyeongju in South Korea, and came to France to follow studies in the fine arts. She lives and works in Poitiers and Angoulême.
