Creator Jaewook Koh wants to solve modern societies’ structural inconsistencies found in everyday experiences.

Creator Jaewook Koh challenges various issues we face living in the Korean society. Koh is interested especially in various phenomena and influences as individuals and the modern society of ours interact. He focuses on unfair and unreasonable situations where individuals are blamed even when the fundamental problem is in the social system. He uses installation process, videos and audience participation to solve the problems.
Koh has held solo exhibitions like 《Never Let Me Go》(Seoul Art Space Seogyo, 2013), 《ROOM SWEET ROOM》(Songeun Art Cube, 2015) and 《CROSS PLATFORM》(Insa Art Space, 2018) as well as group exhibitions at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Asian Culture Complex and Space CAN.
