Bio



-
Heemin Chung is interested in observing how individuals exist in virtual and real networks as well as in metaphysical events caused by technology. Expressing on canvas experiences of temporal sensual disagreement provided by screens, Chung explores questions of self-identity and digital affect in today’s technology-mediated society. Through a process of revisiting conventional genres of paintingsㅡsuch as landscape and still lifeㅡwithin the context of the contemporary visual environment, and studying the unconventional methods by which conventional materials are molded for pictorial expression on surfaces, Chung metaphorically approaches the ways our onthological senses ar changing and inquires about the meaning of media.

Heemin Chung, based in Seoul, Korea, held her first solo exhibition at Project Space Sarubia Dabang in 2016 and solely represented at Kumho Museum of Art, Seoul in 2018, P21 Gallery, Seoul and Museumhead, Seoul in 2021. Chung also has been shown in various institutions such as National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, Gwacheon, Audio Visual Pavilion, Seoul, Platform L, Seoul, HITE Collection, Seoul, Archive Bomm, Seoul and more. Chung is currently participating in the artist-in-residence program of Goyang Residency run by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea.
