Seung-Hwan Oh works and lives in Seoul, where he was born and raised until moving to New York where he studied film and photography at CUNY Hunter College. His work and practice stem from his interest and approach toward other disciplinary thoughts and ideas, from philosophy to sciences. His most recent work, exhibited at Zaha Museum, was inspired by the notion of the first advent of vision in life on earth, and his current work focuses on implementing microbial growth on film as a means to explore the impermanence of matter as well as the material limitations of photography.
"And I dreamt of a woman suspended upside-down over a lava lake at the end of a rope. She had to go down, to collect magma."
I am a French artist of Polish origins born in 1982. I live and work in the middle of the woods, in the mountains of East of France. I studied Visual Arts at university but mainly followed the maverick’s path and I am self-taught in photography.
I am mainly interested in digging into the mine of existentialism, chtonian mysteries, the uncanny and the unseen. My focus is on the exploration of the inner arena, emotional and psychological self-discovery. I use art as a way to uncover the true Self and integrate Shadow elements into the personality. The wild, the magic of synesthesias, symbols, rituals and intimacy drive me to create.
My creative vision has been nurtured by the encounter with the worlds of Ingmar Bergman, David Lynch, Andreï Tarkovski, or Sharunas Bartas.

“Ongoing project, where I use light and colored background to make plastic bags look magical. Creating a landscape within the plastic bag.Plastic bags are a huge contributor to the landfill waste, and are extremely harmful for our oceans and the creatures living there. Do not say yes to a plastic bag when shopping. These plastic bags were found in the street.”
Dreams Of Other Worlds is a new collaborative work by Orjis and Singh speaking of serenity and escape, focused on the pleasure of making. On show at We Are But Dust & Shadow this work speaks of the mindfulness of repetition & is echoed in a collaboration with nature and the culture of the bees. As the work positions itself to reflect the words of D.K Suzuki from the book Into The light Of Things, ”To be satisfied with a little hut, a room of two or three tatami mats, like the log cabin of Thoreau”.
