Youngsook Choi is a London-based artist and researcher with a PhD in human geography. Youngsook’s practice relates to her subjective position as a woman, mother, and migrant of Korean Heritage, coming from a working-class background. Her works often develop narratives of ‘non- fictional fantasy’, a mixture of research evidence, folk tales, mythologies and performative instructions for audience participation. Youngsook is the selected artist for the Constellations 2020/21 (UP Project and Flat Time House, London) and currently taking up the residency with Asia Art Activism at Raven Row, exploring the concept of ‘political spirituality’ and intimate aesthetics of community actions. Works commissioned by various institutions such as Barbican Centre, Rich Mix, Milton Keynes Art Centre, and MK Islamic Arts Heritage and Culture.
