Yunju Park. Seoul, Korea

Yunju Park holds her MFA degree in Public Art and New Art Strategies from Bauhaus University in Germany. She works research-based from intervening in public space, site-specific analysis for understanding the coexisted-structure under differences in the historical, social, political, and cultural context. ‘Objects in motion_directivity and weight’ is the main subject to approach individual stories in the public realm to share and how to engage by artistic action. Her interest is objects-embodiments performing and representing their own vitality in different dimensional ways, between public and private space, internet and virtual realm, etc.

She uses different media such as public performance, installation, architecture, 3D modeling, narrative text, fieldwork, and digital media. Here, those media work as tools for performative embodiment of the context of sociology, anthropology, and fictional narratives. The use of the methodology is extended from public-sites though the internet realm to AR (augmented reality).

The concept of ‘weight and directivity’ was shown in 2014 through the solo exhibition Your action is prohibited in South Korea, supported by Korea Art council. It was expanded to performative public art through Free Zero in 2016, which is exhibited between the Dresden Museum in Germany and Incheon Art Platform, Korea at the same time. Bogenraum Project (2019) worked on the border between performance, public art, and video installation. In 2020, Non-Blue Sculpture talked about lens of eyes by transferring the existence of objects into the virtual realm through architectural design and 3D animation methodology.
