Jazoo Yang, an emerging artist from Korea, got a new site. Check it out at jazooyang.com. Yang uses a variety of techniques, like paintings, installations, performance or tape works and especially works in South Korea’s urban space.
In 2012 there are several chances to see her work in real life, with exhibitions coming up in Seoul, Busan, Berlin and New York. Stay tuned for more.
“Geographically, my eye has shifted from entire nations to border areas, the specificities of places, ethnic groups, traditions “not-yet-institutionalized”, and I think that my attitude is visible also in the approach that I use towards the media: I’m curious to face the spaces between photography and performance, interventions that cross public life and the virtual world, the search for beauty or controversy, without shutting myself into a specific classification. The cost reduction of technology on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the acquired ability to reproduce almost every idea, thanks to new technologies, are the perfect combinations for those, who, like me, are constantly distracted by what is around them and look for an approach that could be defined artisanal, based on mastering the use of various media not as the means to an end, but simply as tools.”
