siren eun young jung, the winner of 2018 Korea Artist Prize, will present a performance in Asia Art Archive’s exhibition at 2019 Art Basel in Hong Kong (27 – 29 MAR 2019). This exhibition titled 《The Body Collective: Performance Art Histories》 looks at the evolution of performance art in Asia from the 1970s till today. The display features artwork and other materials drawn from AAA’s Collection, which includes the archives of Kwok Mangho Frog King, Ray Langenbach, Lee Wen, and Betsy Damon (Keepers of the Waters), among others. Other related public programmes include events with a performer and activist Maya Krishna Rao, and an artist Xing Danwen.
Jung studied Visual Art and Feminist Theory at Ewha Womans University and at the University of Leeds, UK. Her artistic interest lies in how the yearning desires of unknown individuals meet with the events of the world, and how such contacts become resistance, history, or politics. Since 2008, she has been working on 'Yeoseong Gukgeuk' Project.
