Artist Statement

Suhyun Choi is an artist and organizer who maps narratives of Queerean existence and labor. Their multidisciplinary practice (including installations, textiles, and social organizing) works to uplift and honor femme labor through creating grounding moments that make space for deep reverence and grief. These philosophical ruminations on the fundamental aspect of being, power, and interdependence translates to their organizing work, where collective care takes form in the process of re-indigenization and transformative justice. Through ritual and obsession, divination and prayer, they create care-based, philosophical, grounded, and cute works.
