Bokyung Jun

Bokyung Jun uses various medium such as photography, installation and video. The artist crosses over the dichotomic definition of art and non-art by visualizing the non-artists’ bodies and memories to redefine the realm of ‘art’. The moment when the world of others is substantiated through the embodied body, his(her) stories start to speak out breaking the void of silence. Through such practice, it does ‘re-write’ in the relationship between art and labor, aesthetics and non-aesthetic. She is also a cofounder and member of artist collective teams, ETC and Z-After.
