Hyun-Ah Cho

MA work

My work explores and exaggerates the thin and delicate line between fiction and reality where our notion of what is real becomes ungraspable. Nature has become an artefact like a museum. The representation of collected plants and their arrangement for display within controlled man-made environments have become a diorama, a space of in-between, where our notion of what is the real is constantly shifting. I believe that the medium of photography is in-between a represented reality and representing a new reality, and my work expresses a place that is neither fabricated fiction nor an accepted reality grounded on firm foundations.
