Artist & Work

siren eun young jung

siren eun young jung studied Visual art and Feminist theory at Ewha Womans University and at the University of Leeds, UK. Her artistic interest lies in how the yearning desires of unknown individuals meet with the events of the world, how such contacts become resistance, history, and politics. She is also constantly attempting to expand the feminist artistic language. One of her prominent projects, Dongducheon Project(2007-2009) was an inquiry of life and death of the female residents in the US Army town of Dongducheon. Since 2008, she has been working on Yeoseong Gukgeuk (Korean Traditional Female Theater) Project in which she follows a community of performers of the genre. In 2013, she was awarded Hermes Foundation Missulsang,  in 2015 Sindoh Art Prize, and in 2018 Korea Art Awards with the project. Now she lives and works in Seoul, and also gives several lectures at Ewha Womans University, Sungkyunkwan University, and Korea National University of Art.
