CV

BIO
유년시절  배운 가야금과, 소리, 사물놀이는 작가 예술 세계의 원천이다.  미술을 전공했지만, 뉴욕대학교 ITP 학과 졸업 후, 미디어 기술을 기반으로 가야금, 무용, 필름, 드로잉, 퍼포먼스 등의 다양한 매체를 결합한 융복합 퍼포먼스 작업을 지속해 오고 있다.Empathy ( 타인의 고통을 함께하다 ) 를 모티브로 하는 관객 참여 인터랙티브 작업을 중심으로 뉴욕-한국-베를린을 오가며 활발히 활동 중이며, 작업은 국립현대미술관, 시민청, 세종현대갤러리, 아시아문화전당, Eyebeam, Bemis center, Yaddo, Watermill center, Adward Elbee residency 등 다양한 곳에서 전시/공연 되었다. 세월호-형제복지원 작업에 이어 2018년 미디어 월 공모에 당선된 5.18에 관한 융복합 서사 퍼포먼스 작업 Licht는 큰 호평 속에 2019년 재공연 되었다. 2019년 광주전통문화관에서 ISEA(International Symposium on Electronic Art)국제전자예술학회의 폐막을 맡아 한국의 전통악기, 판소리를 통한 프로젝션 맵핑 기반의 융복합 퍼포먼스를 선보여 국제적인 감각을 인정 받았다. 

Although Jayoung majored in visual arts, she learned to play three Korean traditional instruments in her childhood, so her body has remembered those unique sounds as well as the physical motions involved in creating them. She incorporates the music she composes and performs with sounds of nature to create her visuals via the technology of sound processing programs she has personally developed. Throughout her work, there is harmony between traditional arts and contemporary technology. She has been awarded residencies at Eyebeam, Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts, ZK/U in Berlin, Watermill Center which is run by Robert wilson, Yaddo fellowship, Edrawd Albee, Swing Space at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) in 2012, Culturehub in 2011, an organization that values cross-cultural artistic collaboration, I-Park Foundation and an AHL residency in 2011.
She received an MPS from ITP at the Tisch School of Arts in New York University in 2010, as well as BFAs from Seoul National University in 2005 and Ewha Woman's University in 2003 in South Korea.
