About the Author

Seungwon JUNG is a contemporary Korean artist based in London. JUNG received a BFA in Fine Art Photoraphy from Chung-Ang University in 2017 and an MFA from Slade School of Fine Art, UCL in 2019. JUNG is interested in presenting the imperfect nature of memory using photography and textile. Her interest in time and memory began with
Kyung Ae(2016), a work about tracing the past of her grandmother who was diagnosed with early dementia. JUNG adds multiple layers to meaning by printing photographs on fabric, a variable medium, and applying physical transformation. Her most recognizable works include Memories Full of Forgetting (2017~ ), Bark (2018) and Digital Strata (2019~ ). She was an artist in residence at the UCL Art Museum in 2018 and a recipient of several awards including The Photographers’ Gallery New Talent Award in 2019. Her work was featured internationally in press and media including LensCulture,
The Guardians, and X=Y Magazine and is continuing to attract international attention.

Jihyun JUNG received his BFA and MFA from Chung-Ang University and is currently a PhD candidate at the same university. Born in 1983, JUNG is considered as one of the ‘apartment kids’ in South Korea. In the mid-2000s, after witnessing the demolishment of childhood hometown, Jamsil Jugong Apartment Complex, due to housing reconstruction plan, the artist has expanded his interest in urban spaces by documenting reconstruction and redevelopment sites. From the late-2000s, JUNG has photographed the course of changes at the construction sites of the New Towns, which refer to master planned cities. Some of his well-recognized series include Construction Site (2012), Demolition Site (2013), Reconstruction Site (2015), and Construction (2017). JUNG was named as the ‘Final Artist of the Year’ at the 6th KT&G SKOPF and was awarded as the residency artist at the MMCA Residency Goyang in 2015 and the Gyeonggi Creation Center in 2018. His work resides in the collection of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, Museum of Contemporary Art Busan, Seoul Museum of Art, Amorepacific Museum of Art and many more.
