Since winning the Loewe Craft Prize in 2022, textile artist Dahye Jeong has been at the forefront of redefining ancient Korean weaving practices and enlightening the world to the heavenly possibilities of horsehair.
Thus with the announcement of Jeongs first solo show outside of South Korea taking place at this years London Craft Week, it brought with it great excitement and anticipation. After enticing us with the display of her award winning vessel ‘A Time for Serenity’ at COLLECT earlier this year, Jeong returns to London once again with a collection of intricate horsehair works. On show at Cromwell Place Mind, Hand and Time is presented by Soluna Fine Art, a leading gallery for craft based in Seoul.
