Saneun Hwang


Saneun Hwang is a multidisciplinary artist and designer currently based in New York. She graduated with a BFA Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in 2017.

In her body of work, she attempts to create visual archives of space, time and memory.  Her installation work, interweaves different media such as sculpture, photography along with various elements, to create an extended form of art. This gives an immersive and interactive experience of space and form. Through her work, she questions the origin of existence, presence and our belonging. 

Selected Exhibitions includes Kate Oh Gallery, NY; Korean Culture Center New York, Carrie Able Gallery, Brooklyn; Lazy Susan Gallery, NY. Publications include Precious Magazine, BFA 20/20 Catalog, Visual opinion, and NYSAI Press. Selected by the Chair’s choices, her thesis work ‘The Deeper The Further” was featured in the School of Visual Arts BFA 20/20 Catalog, which was modulated by Hitomi Iwasaki, the director at the Queens Museum of Art.
