Artist Statement




soJin Chun’s photographic, installation and video works look at the complex and fluid relationship between a specific place (a neighbourhood, a city) and its residents. Responding to each specific environment, the artist creates humorous and whimsical portrayals that reveal the idiosyncrasies in language, cultural identity and urban environments in a global era. Though Chun’s work could be categorized as identity-based, the artist sees the uncertain and fluid nature of identity, which contradicts essentialist notions of the self, demonstrating the in-between spaces of identities and locations.
