Yeondoo Jung


Using the framework of children’s drawings, Korean artist Yeondoo Jung has created a series of photos titled “Wonderland.” In this series, the artist takes a literal approach in translating information between actual children’s drawings and staged photographs. Space and distance are distorted as the artist’s photographs offer a mix of reality and fantasy in the interpretation of a child’s view of the world. Yeondoo Jung received his BFA from the Fine Arts College at Seoul National University and his MA from Goldsmiths College at the University of London. The artist has exhibited with Tina Kim Fine Art, NYC (2005), and Insa Art Center, Seoul (2004). Jung also participated in the artist residency programs Villa Arson, Nice, France (2004); and Art Omi, NYC (2003). In 2002, the artist received the 2nd Shanghai Biennale Asia-Europe Foundation Cultural Grant.
