Jin Hee is a multidisciplinary visual artist, writer, community events organizer and (occasional) performer. Their fiber work deals with the dichotomy of privatization and exhibitionism when exploring identity and body politics. Jin strives to visualize the abstractions of these topics in a literal manner with thread and yarn by needle felting genitalia and decorating them. The decorative features draw in viewers to peer into something that is often hidden. They are interested in addressing topics of oppressive and regulative ideals set forth by East Asian beauty standards for women (i.e. plastic surgery and cosmetic industries) as an act to mimic Eurocentric beauty standards.They challenge these standards by integrating and reflecting cultural practices of body modification and suspension as a form of mental and bodily cleansing. They aim to shed light on forms of beauty and aesthetics that American ideals see as unorthodox. Jin is a 2nd generation Korean American, born and raised in Hawaii. They received their Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual and Critical Studies from the School of Visual Arts. Jin’s work has been exhibited in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Raleigh, and Honolulu.
