(1982, Busan, South Korea)
[Bio] Sojung Jun(South Korea, 1982) received a BFA in Sculpture from Seoul National University and an MFA from Yonsei University. She is known for her video and performance artworks. Sojung Jun has been intrigued by the concept of time and the repetitive experience of emotion in our life. She takes the life stories of individuals she comes across and retells them as part of her work through stage plays, performances and narratives using ancient texts as reference. One of her solo exhibitions, One Man Theater, which was shown in Sungkyun Gallery in Seoul in 2009, demonstrates Jun’s interest in producing a series of related shots that constitute a complete unit of action. In her series Daily Experts, ongoing since 2009, she seeks to mull over life and art by configuring the exclusive tempo, language, colors, sounds and editing for video works in an integrated manner.
