Yeondoo Jung at MAAP SPACE

Yeondoo Jung, 'Documentary Nostalgia' (2007). Video still.

The first Australian solo-exhibition by leading South Korean artist, Yeondoo Jung, will be held at MAAP SPACE, 27 September - 8 November.

Please join us for the opening of Yeondoo Jung’s exhibition on Friday 27 September 2013 from 5pm – 8pm.

Yeondoo Jung makes elaborate artificial environments for video and photographs. Combining handmade theatrical sets with analogue special effects, the South Korean artist creates worlds that are richly detailed and slick but always a little imperfect. MAAP SPACE presents two spectacular video works, Documentary Nostalgia (2007) and Twilight Seoul (2012), in what is Yeondoo’s first Australian solo-exhibition. In these works, as with many of his projects, the artist plays with the shakiness of truth in both representation and recollection.

Exhibition continues until 8th November 2013.  Read more about the exhibition.
