Kyungwoo Chun

Kyungwoo Chun: Photographs, Video Performances
by Stephan Berg
Publisher's Description
These exceptionally intense portraits, which sometimes take several hours to expose, are not character studies, nor do they seek to “portray” in the conventional sense of the word. The photographer and his subjects enter into a dialogue which, as Stephan Berg has observed, culminates in a picture “in which not only the photographer himself and the person photographed, but also the time they have spent together are superimposed.” Kyungwoo Chun, a native of Seoul born in 1969, is focused—figuratively and perhaps literally— on the phenomenon of time and the ways in which we apprehend it. Time, for the artist, is “what we as individuals actually live,” and “life is self-defined time.”
