Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible Ocula Report Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible 17 Apr 2019 : Federica Bueti for Ocula

I first visited Havana in November 2016, a few days after Fidel Castro died, and just under a year before Hurricane Irma hit Cuba in September 2017.

Yeondoo Jung

b. 1969, South Korea

Interested in the mediated reality of contemporary life, Yeondoo Jung's video and photographs portary a surreal and fantastical vision of the everyday. Describing his own work as more documentary than mise-en-scene, the artist invites participants to enact heroic situations. The chance encounters that result are often startling yet attempt to situate viewers in the present. In this sense Jung's works are anti-illusionist.

Seoul eye: say cheese? Evergreen Tower by Jung Yeon-doo Related Press Seoul eye: say cheese? Evergreen Tower by Jung Yeon-doo TimeOut Seoul : 7 August 2015

There’s an artificial quality to Jung Yeon-doo’s work that you can’t quite figure out. Despite the ever-so-slightly awkward smiles and staged poses, the people in these photos aren’t hired models. These are real families that live in the same apartment complex.
