“Departure” by visual artist Hyeyoung Shin is the third phase of a major year-long project that deals with human loss, suffering and vulnerability, inspired by the loss of her father to an incurable illness. Shin’s Inspiration grant will fund a 4-week residency at the Vermont Studio Center in June, where she will complete work on 4 large scale drawings and 2 sculptural castings of doors to be installed jointly as an exhibition. The Inspiration grant will help pay costs for the residency fee that covers studio fee and accommodation at the Center, a well-known artist-driven organization since 1984 where many passionate artists have been actively involved for over three decades.
