GYUN HUR is an interdisciplinary artist and an educator. Through her menial process of making and transforming materials, Gyun attempts to create a narrative space that evokes a sense of labor, loss, and memories. Born in South Korea, she moved to Georgia at the age of 13. Gyun currently lives in New York City and enjoys taking care of her indoor plants and teaching her students at Parsons School of Design. She was the writer-in-residence for Dancing Platform Praying Grounds: Blackness, Churches, and Downtown Dance.
As a continuation of a drawing and text series produced during Gyun Hur’s time as writer-in-residence at Danspace Project Platform 2018, Gyun invited Helly Minarti, a visiting dance curator/scholar from Jakarta, to join her in performative writing on a Google doc as a response to a lively conversation she had with Helly at a café this month.
