Morning Dew, 2019 Video, 4:04 minutes
Two Buoys Two Voids, 2017, C-print mounted on di-bond
Jung is interested in planetary rhythms - the cycles of life and death. These works centre on themes of Monday and its etymology, day of the moon. Using 'Monday' and the 'moon' as motifs, her work conjures up a sense of journey and a reflection on life.
Morning Dew captures a year-long performance of collecting dew every Monday, while Two Buoys Two Voids explores the notion of loss, attempting to capture the void between the two figures.
Engaging with the environment and those around her, Yva Jung’s practice weaves together encounters, stories and places.
Yva Jung has a PhD in Fine Art from the Slade School of Fine Art, London (2016), MA Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts, New York, (2008) and BA Fine Arts from Ewha Woman’s University, Seoul (2002).
She has been awarded artist residency fellowships including at Florence Trust, London (2018-19) and Griffin Gallery, London (2017). Jung won a solo show at the Korean Cultural Centre UK, London (2015). Her work has been shown in various exhibitions including Florence Trust, London (2019), SPACE, London (2018), Art Night, London (2017), Korean Cultural Centre UK, London (2016) and CAFAM Biennale, Beijing, (2014).
