Artist Bio

Born in 1980 in Seoul, Do-yeon Gwon received his B.F.A. in literature from Hanyang University and completed his M.A. in photography at Sangmyung University. Do-yeon Gwon’s work reveals the unexpected worlds found in books, the shape of paper, and the interweaving of visual imagery with language. Populated with inanimate objects, including books and folded paper, his photographs search for their “place” in the universe as he explores ideas of memory. He is known for an early photographic series he completed while still in graduate school, titled Traveler Novice (2011), which features paper airplanes that take off, land, and travel through interior spaces. Later, he embarked on the project Dictionary of Notion. Gwon’s work was featured in the 2014 Seoul Lunar Photo Festival and the 2011 Seoul Photo Festival. His work has appeared in solo exhibitions at the Ryugaheon Gallery, Seoul, and at Nuda Gallery, Daejeon, South Korea. His series Dictionary of Notion received the Korean Photographer’s Fellowship Artist of the Year prize at KT&G Sangsang Madang in 2014. He was the winner of the portfolio review at the 2014 Daegu Photo Biennale in South Korea, and in 2011 he was awarded portfolio prizes at the Seoul Photo Festival and at the 12th Sajin Bipyong Awards at Photospace, Seoul.
