Christa Joo Hyun D'Angelo is an American artist based in Berlin. She studied under TJ Demos at The Maryland Institute College of Art and later The Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow Poland.
The core of D'Angelo's work confronts fear, vulnerability and what is thus invisible through video, neon, installation, and sculpture. Drawing on personal narratives, experience, and memory, she navigates lewd behaviors and precarious conditions and attempts 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.
Her works have been exhibited at The Screen City Biennial, Halle14, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Armory Artfair, Hua International, Villa Merkel and The Goethe Institut. She has received grants from Der Bundesverband Bildender Künstlerinnen und Künstler, Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art Winnipeg, and The Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
D'Angelo's work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, Elephant Magazine, and The New York Times and is included in The Federal Collection of Contemporary Art Germany. She was a part of MTV Germany's 2021 Pride Campaign and has designed sets for Fever Ray and King Kong Magazine.
