Mimi Jung’s work examines multiple dimensions of self-preservation, particularly as it relates to private and public self-representation, and the ways in which those depictions are manifest through social and cultural mores. Her constructed forms, with their voids and translucencies, are fixed but never static; the viewer actively controls the experience of transit around and through them—reflecting inward on their own behaviors. In the end, Jung’s limning of space is reflexive, visible to those who are predisposed to see it.
Born in 1981 in Seoul, Korea, Mimi Jung received a BFA from Cooper Union and attended HGK Basel and Städelschule for postgraduate studies.

Her work is absolutely amazing and creates a sense of awe!!
Came across this amazing woman and company that is helping in keeping the art of fabric dyeing alive and true. Mariana Pussacq is an artist and architect that in 2010 decided to develop a unique color palette of over 100 colors on hand dyed herself on fabrics such as velvet, linen, canvas, cotton, panama and tussore. Mariana used her fabrics in her interior design projects and not long after began sharing her colors/fabrics with other designers. In 2012 her work was recognized internationally.
What is also impressive about this company is that it is housed in a 1924 cotton mill in Jauregui, Lujan a province in Buenos Aires called, ‘The Flandria’. It was originally directed by Julio Steverlynck in 1928. He used techniques from his country of origin, Belgium which quickly turned that rural province into a textile mecca. Mariana has resurrected this factory and instilled new life into it while respecting its past. Since inception she has grown from a palette of 100 to over 148 colors and has expanded from just fabrics to a clothing line.
