Bae Young-hwan uses a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, installation and video work to explore heavy themes that evoke introspective responses to civilization theories. Since the late 1990s, he has incorporated the double-sided nature of romance and resistance to popular music in his works, including the Pop Song series. He has participated in a number of major international exhibitions, including the 51st Venice Biennale (2005). His solo exhibitions include “Bae Young- hwan: Project Exhibition” (Shinsegae Gallery, Seoul, 2017), “Pagus Avium” (Platform-L Contemporary Art Center, Seoul, 2016). His work has also been featured in group exhibitions including “The Square: Art and Society in Korea” (MMCA, Seoul, 2019), “Ghosts, Spies, and Grandmothers” (Seoul Mediacity Biennale, 2014).
