Heeseung Chung Biography

Heeseung Chung has been exploring the original meaning of the object and the meaning behind it through photography, and furthermore, she has continued to explore the limitations and possibilities of the photography as a medium. She builds synesthetic narratives by documenting daily objects, bodies, and spaces as pictures and creating sequences by delicately arranging images regarding to the specific exhibition space.Chung makes an object with infinite potential that cannot be clearly defined by varying the space and time in which the object exists, or the compositional arrangement and arrangement. Her active intervention and directing allows the camera to capture the present progression of the subject becoming something rather than reproducing the fragmentary exterior. Her sensuously refined screen expands the visual act of 'Seeing' into a communicative experience by inducing interpretation based on the viewer's subjective experience. Through this, the clear or fixed meaning of objects is newly created in the relationship between the viewer and the image in the exhibition space, inducing the viewer to freely cross the boundaries of perception.Heeseung Chung lives and work in Seoul, Korea. She receives BFA in Painting at Hongik University and two degrees BA and MA in Photography at London College of Communication, London. She is currently the most promising female photographer in Korean art scene and a finalist for the 2020 Korea Artist Prize from MMCA Korea, completed BA and MA in Photography at London College of Communication in 2007. Since then, she has been showing a remarkable step as a contemporary photographer by being invited major art institutions such as Art Sonje Center (2013), Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art (2014), Seoul Museum of Art (2014), MMCA (2017), the 12th Gwangju Biennale (2018), and Belfast Photo Festival (2019). Her works are included in MMCA, Korea, Seoul Museum of Art, Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, Daegu Art Museum, Amore Pacific Museum of Art in Korea and University of the Arts London, UK, etc.
