​KyungSun Jun

Born in 1974, Jun KyungSun majored in sculpture at Sungshin Women’s University, earning a BFA and a MFA in its graduate school. Beginning with her first solo exhibition in 1998, she has been an active artist, presenting 9 solo exhibitions and over 50 group exhibitions throughout the last 18 years.

 

[Remembers and Talks about Transparent Space]: Through mysterious beings and fantastic scenes created in this transparent space, the artist attempts to express the escape of modern man and the warm space of healing. The characters in the work raise questions about the ontology of an ideal world, not reality.

 

[Wood]: Jun’s artwork takes narrative as a core element, while sculpture works as an illustration to support this narrative. She chooses the wood, an element that best fits her in its expression of soft, delicate parts. It also exudes both light and heavy feelings. Above all, the vitality of the wood is another characteristic of the tree’s presence that support’s the artist’s narrative.

 

[The Transparent Body]: The artist explores ‘The Transparent Body’ series as a new subject in 2016. Compares to previous works, it is enhanced by its more serious subject matter and grotesque atmosphere. The work is expected to deliver new interpretations of the multilayered structures of the human character and life.

 

[Picture Story Book]: Employing mysterious beings and fantastic scenes, the artist is preparing ‘Picture Story Book.’ This book will guide everyone into a ‘story read through illustration,’ one in which both children and adults can identify.
