Description

22 Feb 2017, Wed 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

What is artistic research? Which are the material and immaterial aspects that constitute contemporary art practices? Within the context of The Making of an Institution, Artist-in-Residence siren eun young jung addresses the process of artistic research that lies behind her long-term project on Yeosung Gukgeuk, a form of Korean theatre featuring only female actors that flourished between the 1940s and the 1960s. Over almost a decade, jung has produced a multiplicity of works around this subject challenging the interpretation of tradition and gender politics in contemporary Korean society. The artist will introduce the screening of Act of Affect (2013) and I am not going to sing (2015), positioning Yeosung Gukgeuk at the intersection between issues of affect, gender structures, and performativity.

This talk is part of the public programme of The Making of an Institution.
