Artist

Sojung Jun

Born in Busan, 1982 and lives in Seoul, South Korea

Sojung Jun 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.
