Residency Period | Jun - Aug 2017

Yeondoo Jung is one of the most internationally acclaimed contemporary artists in South Korea. Deploying various cinematic configurations for his photographic and video works, Jung explores the border between fiction and reality. Through the memories and dreams narrated by common people, Jung highlights the distinctive moments of anonymous individuals in modern history. Jung was invited by important institutions such as MoMA, Asia Society in New York and National Museum of Contemporary Art in Gwacheon, South Korea, and participated in numerous biennales including Venice, Gwangju and Shanghai.
