Swatch presents Yoon’s two new Swatch Art Specials Time’s Magic and Power of Magic, memorising magical moments and ready to empower your wrist.
The relation between Yoon and Swatch resembles a love story that started in 2017 during her artist residency at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai. It is also where “This Moment is Magic” evolved. Diagnosed with cancer five years earlier, the artist’s treatment involved an analgesic injection that felt like a magic wand, enlightening one of the darkest moments of her life in the form of Saekdong, a traditional Korean multi-coloured pattern. Core to her art since the concept was born, the magic wand and the joyful colours continue reappearing in her work.
Dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai, the Power of Magic is limited and numbered to 1,976 pieces. It carries the magic wand and comes in a special 3D-packaging, shining bright in Saekdong colours and definitely an artwork itself.
