South Korea / °1979
Jung-yeon Min displays her vision of a phantasmagoric and organic world. Her landscapes, which hold titles like “Jalousie” (jealousy), show images of cancer cells, the interior of the human body, its intimacy, reminding the viewer of the famous mutation-scene of the animated film Akira. The landscapes appear realistic in a large format and completely phantasmagorical. They look graphic, although they are hand-drawn. They show abundance as well as gaps. The artist’s imagination creates scientific space, which connects the virtual with reality; she exposes, what possibilities the peak of imagination can lead to.
