EunHye Jung

EunHye Jung believes that the animals bred for consumption are the most mistreated creature in the current era. Jung embody these animals in her art with ceramics to show that they are live creatures deserving better treatment. Rather than directly describing them in their pain, her subjects are animated in a humorous way to show that they have emotions. In Jung's artworks, animals portrayed with their own voices as living creatures refusing to become food products on the shelf
