RADIO // Dialogues in Asian Contemporary ArtYeondoo Jung
Originally aired 11/22/09
South Korean artist Yeondoo Jung talks with Leeza Ahmady about his art and how his childhood exposure to Traditional Chinese Medicine, and early 19th century photographers continues to inspire his artistic thinking. He discusses his latest video, Hand Made Memory, where he has juxtaposed interviews of real life characters with entirely staged interpretations of their stories. He likes to offer transparency to his viewers about the process of his image construction. “The process is what is so exciting and I want to share how I play with multiple elements: fiction, truth, documentary and pure fantasy.” In his first ever-live performance event Cinemagician, commissioned by Performa 2009, Jung integrates sound, camera feed-back, cinematic tricks, and the energy of a live magician in performance to create a magical experience for the audience (37 minutes).
