Christa Joo Hyn D'Angelo is an American artist based in Berlin. She was born in 1983 in Busan South Korea and raised in NYC. D'Angelo attended the Maryland Institute College of Art and studied under TJ Demos and later The Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow Poland.
The core of her artistic work and research confronts fear, vulnerability, and what is thus, invisible. By challenging ideas about what is normal, new imaginations are forged in order to understand the delicate complexities of race, relationships, labor, isolation and class through intimate narratives and absurd juxtapositions that seek to uncover the unseen ways in which marginalization and fear effect our desire to belong. Through video, neon, sculpture, installation and collage she seeks to redefine what is normal while embracing difference as a source of inspiration and empowerment in order to discover new means of acceptance and ultimately, healing.
D'Angelo has exhibited at The Screen City Biennial, Halle 14, VOLTA NY, NYU's Global Asia Pacific Institute, PS120, Kunstraum Bethanien and Galerie im Turm. Her work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, Elephant Magazine, The University of Rochester's Academic Journal and The Guardian. In 2019 she was Artist in Residence at Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art in Winnipeg, Canada and a 2019 Project Grant Holder from The District of Cultural Fund of Kreuzberg -Friedrichshain. She has designed sets for Fever Ray and King Kong Magazine and has worked with Charlie Le Mindu on costumes for Peaches.
