Artist Video

This year’s Artist Video Strand presents the first UK solo exhibition by Korean artist Ellie Kyungran Heo, featuring her latest project Plantarians (2017-2020), in partnership with LUX.

Ellie Kyungran Heo’s work considers the ethics of coexistence, attending to the underlying environmental conflicts in everyday lives. Her reframing of encounters between humans and nature reveals an intricate web of interdependence and questions anthropocentric perspectives. Punctuated by humour and irony, Heo’s works are filled with social and ecological entanglements, in which the multiplicity of discourse is celebrated.
