Ziesook earned a master’s degree in fine art and taught contemporary art and video art and techniques at universities and graduate schools from 2006 to 2014. From 1999 to 2018, she participated in various studio activities including residency programs. She participated in a number of exhibitions and had 14 individual exhibitions in Korea and USA. She is currently working at her studio in Austin and is participating in exhibitions in several cities in Texas, South Carolina, California, and New York.

Since 2016, she has been working on the "Scent of Broq-pa" project, which expresses happiness through the coexistence of humans and nature, with people from various walks of life and has been exhibiting it in Korea, Hong Kong, UK, and the United States.

Broqpa is the name of a small village in Nepal. Ziesook first learned of it from a TV documentary, The Last Empire. Ziesook was moved by what she learned about a small village located at the end of the Silk Road in Nepal named Broq-pa. In Broq-pa, the symbolic meaning of flowers is very special. In the Nepalese culture, flowers symbolize love, happiness, and appreciation for God. Broq-pa’s women are committed to growing flowers in their garden and decorate their hair with flowers every day.

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"


Cheryl | London
