We are pleased to announce an exhibition No ISBN by Eunji Jung on January 27 (Saturday) & 28 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Eunji Jung is making graphic novels and drawings based in Seoul. She graduated in BFA graphic and moving image design and MA Fine Art. After she passed Ph.D course, has not only prepared her dissertation for comic department, also concentrated on making self- published comics and alternative comic zine with her students in University.
She has explored the correlation between the body, identity and the world in various field of contemporary art. In particular she focuses on the notion of transformed body in various circumstances.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
I have investigated various art forms that utilize the human body, which derive from an aspect of social relations. In this sense, what I take a suitable methodology to address the issue is self-published comics. During the empirical part of self-publishing with no *ISBN in my residency period, I have reached the idea that my works seems to correspond to the pronounced desire of individualist, and it still reinforces my main subject ‘metamorphosed body’ which is illusory artificiality of the flimsy adolescent.
*ISBN: International Standard Book Number for identifying commercial books
