Eunju Hong – ANNAGREEN

Fakulta Umení TUKE, Poslucháreň W2, Watsonova 4 5.12.2023 10.00 a.m.

In this lecture, Eunju Hong will delve into a diverse range of topics encompassing the video work ‘Annagreen,’ exploring both its practical and theoretical dimensions. The discussion will span from the material and technological development influenced by warfare to the process of filmmaking as an art form, and finally, to the perspective of the female gaze.

Eunju Hong explores the impact of technology on society and human beings, viewing it as an organ that could be contamination and death drive, desire, prosthetic and a letter from a daughter to her mom. She interweaves fictional narratives through film, found footage, performance, and installation. Her work delves into microscopic interventions, examining the sensory and emotional adaptation of the body, while also exploring the dystopian imagination that arises when biased A.I. technology dominates. Currently, she is conducting research on the connection between collective trauma induced by new materials, weapons, and medical technology and individual experiences.
