Yeondoo Jung: Behind the Scenes

May 2, 2017 - August 13, 2017

This exhibition features the large-scale projection of the Korean artist’s 2007 video work, Documentary Nostalgia. The video, captured in one 85-minute sequence, depicts both specific locations from the artist’s memories, including his parents’ home and father’s pharmacy in South Korea, as well as archetypal scenes of nature such as a forest and mountaintop. By making the mechanics of the video visible (choreographed assistants construct sets before the viewer’s eyes) Jung offers a rare behind-the-scenes view of film production, while commenting on the precarious nature of memory.
