Kwanho Yuh : Seed Bank

Yuh first developed the idea for Seed Bank after being invited to contribute to a project in Hanover in 2004. She took a bench from her home, placed it in a brown-field site and invited visitors to find and donate seeds. 

Each seed was photographed in the donor’s hand, put in a plastic bag with a one cent coin, signed by the artist, and returned to them. Yuh kept the photograph as a record of the meeting.

Seed Bank develops the artist’s communication between the collector and the donor and hopes to increase awareness of the small sources of life around us. The work acknowledges that an idea never happens in isolation; the relationship between the artist and her visitors is a mutually beneficial one as each forms part of the final work.

Yuh created a fourth Seed Bank for YSP, with a two-day event to collect and photograph seeds in 2008.
