JungEun Yang - Multidisciplinary artist
JungEun Yang(b. 1995, Korea) is a multidisciplinary artist from South Korea currently based in London. Her preferred media are installation, painting, sculpture, writing, video, and photography. Doubting and questioning the existence of humans is at the root of her practice.
My work is based on the questioning of existence. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Our existence within time and space and lack thereof. The inescapable inevitability of death makes me skeptical and is a reality I often find myself fixated on.
There are two egos in me. One says: “What’s the point in working hard if I am destined to become nothing? Everything I do is meaningless.” Meanwhile the other replies: “No matter how small and insignificant we are, I am still the main character in my life. So I should try my best.” There are moments where I fluctuate between these two egos and others where I avoid both mindsets to distance myself from the certain cynicism that is bound to follow.
