윤정미 Jeongmee Yoon 


 윤정미는 사회 현상을 날카로운 시선으로 바라보며 현대 사회의 이데올로기적 재생산과 구조에 대한 문제의식을 제기한다. 여자-핑크, 남자-블루라는 컬러 코드화를 <핑크&블루 프로젝트Ⅰ>작업을 통해 첫 선을 보였다. 성별에 따른 선호색은 결국 어른들의 사회적 관념에 의해 형성되었음을 주지시키며 젠더와 고정관념에 따른 기호와 소유 등에 대한 문제를 발견하고 현대 사회의 한 단면을 짚어 보게 한다.


 윤정미는 서울대에서 서양화를 전공, 홍익대학원에서 사진디자인을 전공했으며, 졸업 후 뉴욕 스쿨 오브 비주얼 아트 대학원에서 사진전공으로 석사학위를 받았다. 제9회 일우사진상, 홍콩의 소버린 예술재단 아시아 작가상과 제5회 다음작가상을 수상하였고, 보스톤 미술관, 국립현대 미술관 미술은행 등 국내외에 작품이 소장되어 있다.
