Ellen Altfest Ocula Conversation Ellen Altfest

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
