Jung Haejung starts with sensations about places where she stayed to study related stories, rumors, historical records and surrounding environment, and reinterprets them through the body. She has an interest in establishing new rules by ignoring principles for the existing world, and recataloging them. In the process, new crevices occur between individuals and the world, and the world will have the possibility of endless variation through such crevices and clefts. This is like seeing things hidden under the well-polished glittering and smooth appearance that people take for granted. In so doing, Jung’s artworks break neat narrations defined by outsiders to recover individuals’ rights in a city.
At Incheon Art Platform, she will attempt to collaborate with local residents and artists using regional characteristics of Incheon, and create artworks based on residency experiences.
