siren eun young jung

siren eun young jung makes work that explores the subversive potential of popular cultural practices and highlights the existence of communities that, to this day, maintain spaces for dissimilarity and non-conformity within a given society. Since 2008, the South Korean artist has been involved in a long-term project on Yeoseong Gukgeuk—literally “the traditional women’s theatre.” From documentary research to conducting interviews with the protagonists and witnesses of the time, from the constitution of archives to the performative exploration of the exhibition space and theatre, from collaboration to co-creation with LGBTQ+ communities, jung has contributed significantly to the recognition of Yeoseong Gukgeuk.

Exhibition produced in partnership with Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery.
