Eunju Hong (KOR)

Residency: October - December 2023

Eunju Hong (*1993) lives and works between Germany and South Korea. She 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.

Eunju Hong has studied at the Korea National University of Arts, Beaux-arts Paris, and HfG Karlsruhe. In 2023, she graduated from the Akademie Der Bildenden Künste München in the class of Julian Rosefeldt. Her work has been featured in group exhibitions such as the Goethe Institut Paris, Museum of Contemporary Arts Busan, and Kunstarkaden Munich. She recently had her first solo exhibition at Gallery175 in Seoul.

The residency program is supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council. Slovak Arts Council is the main partner of this project.
