About The Artist:

Meekyoung Shin (b. 1967) is known for her painstaking replicas of antique Chinese vases, featuring hand-painted warriors and ornately scaled dragons that curl across brilliantly coloured bowls made from soap. Trained in the classical tradition of European sculpture, Shin explores the process of translation and mutation- both literal and figurative- undergone by cultural objects that have been subjected to a change in location.
