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, Halle 14, PS120, VOLTANY, Kunstraum Bethanien, Taiwan Digital Arts Center, Galerie im Turm and The Goethe Institute. She has received grants from District Berlin, Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art Winnipeg, The District of Cultural Fund of Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain and was nominated as a mentee for Forecast's fifth edition.
D'Angelo's work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, Elephant Magazine,The New York Times, and The Guardian and is in The Federal Collection of Contemporary Art Germany. She has designed sets for Fever Ray and King Kong Magazine.
