Breakwater of Youngsook Choi and Taey Iohe


Country: UK/Korea


Breakwater is a London-based Korean diaspora artist duo of Youngsook Choi and Taey Iohe. Their work explores social practice across subject matters around climate justice and migrants’ lived experience, excavating counter-narratives centred around spiritual knowledge and the political resonances of landscape. As part of the Liverpool Biennial 2021 public programme, Breakwater launched the working group 'Decolonising Botany' with a focus on challenging and complicating the colonial system of knowledge production around natural science, ecology and migration.
