Ellie Kyungran Heo

Ellie Kyungran Heo is an artist who explores socio-ecological solidarity, conflict, and coexistence through time-based media (primarily moving image), installation, and interdisciplinary research.


Heo’s artistic practice includes:
–    Filmic encounters based on Emmanuel Levinas’ philosophy of interfacing with the Other,
–    Re-interpretation of spaces where sound and image collide,
–    Allusive storytelling inspired by Georges Perec’s Life: A User’s Manual,
–    Perspective shift at the juncture between botany and art,
–    Imaginative association that applies Adam Smith’s moral sentiment theory to non-human subjects.


Following graduation from the Royal College of Art in London (2015), Heo has exhibited and screened her work widely, including: Contemporary Art Biennial Sesc_Videobrasil, São Paulo; National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul; Whitechapel Gallery, London; LUX Moving Image, London; Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht.
