  • Catalogue Essay

    What appears at first to be a photograph of a painting uncovers, on closer inspection, Yoo Hyun Mi’s unique analogue-based process. To create Earth No. I, Yoo painted her props – a small globe, a wooden table and a backdrop – meticulously adding shadows and highlights to underscore the painterly illusion then arranged them before photographing the final composition. For Yoo, the space she has created represents peaceful contemplation, the blank globe symbolising ‘the earth from the past, present and the future.’
