Yeondoo Jung

WHEN : 27th September – 8th November / Opening 27th Sep, 6:00pm

The first Australian solo-exhibition by leading South Korean artist, Yeondoo Jung. 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.
