The Unforever Parallel

This month, Young Sun Han (Alum Berlin ’18) opens his solo show “The Unforever Parallel” at Philadelphia’s The Print Centre.

Han’s was a winning finalist of the prestigious ANNUAL International Competition Solo Shows. Approaching loss from both personal and collective points of view, Han explores his family narratives through the geopolitical history of North and South Korea in the 20th century. His photo-based installations poetically depict the places rooted in these histories.

Han shows as part of the 94th ANNUAL International Competition Solo Shows.

The Print Center’s ANNUAL International Competition is one of the most prestigious and oldest competitions in the United States. The Print Center is particularly interested in highlighting local, national and international artists who utilize photography and printmaking in intriguing ways, both in content and process. Artists who use printmaking and/or photography as critical components of their work, or whose work pushes the boundaries of traditional photographic and printmaking practices, are encouraged to enter.


Please join me for the opening of my show in Philly on ⭐January 16, 2020⭐ alongside two other artists who reveal the histories and human impacts of regional conflicts in their work. @youngsunart

About Young Sun Han

Young Sun Han is a visual artist, lecturer, and curator who articulates human stories through intersecting media: photography, moving image, durational performance, rituals, installation, and found objects. His work aims to reveal how individuals and communities negotiate and adapt to cultural forces in order to locate their sense of place within society and history. Projects also arise out of happenstance experiences by responding to these events through collecting, cataloging, and transposing related imagery and materials. His interdisciplinary practice is borne out of experimentations with different modes of photography, historical research, and gestures of exchange.
