About the Artist
Jihyun Jung (b.1986)
Jihyun Jung’s artistic practice revolves around the exploration of the functionality and movement of sculpture, experimenting with materials such as drifting urban debris and discarded industrial elements as his creative medium. His work responds to the ever-changing urban environment, where through close exploration of its transformations, he extracts the coexisting elements that form the boundaries of urban development. Through his practice, he systematically dissects and reassembles the coexistence of discarded and recognized items, the conventional and the institutional, as well as the aesthetic and the political. Jihyun Jung’s recent solo exhibitions include Gouge hosted at Incheon Art Platform in 2022 and Multipurpose Henry at the Atelier Hermès in 2019. In 2023 he received the 2023 Kimsechoong Award for Young Sculptors.
