Nicole Ji Soo



“Sometimes through exaggerated performances of day to day activities, sometimes through interventions in familiar spaces, I investigate what is bland and dull; what is boring; ennui; what is nothing; and emptiness. I carry an interdisciplinary practice to provoke something deeper in my mundane, perhaps ordinary life. In investigating my everyday, I also investigate my identity, culture and an obsessive desire to find home and comfort in the space that I occupy.”
