Eunjung Hwang’s animated films and installations explore the representability of visual archive material stored in the subconscious. Protagonists in her surreal, child-like drawn dream worlds are characters whose actions and dispositions are driven by primal behavior and emotions and they interact with one another accordingly. Bestial Delights introduced new characters and animations inspired by the “illusion of a fragmented reality” during the artist’s stay in Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. Functioning as a kaleidoscopic puzzle of the unconscious, the work produced its own symbolism.
Eunjung HWANG (*1971 in Seoul) studied computer arts at the School of Visual Arts, New York. Her animated films and installations have been shown in numerous international exhibitions and at major festivals. Eunjung Hwang lives and works in New York.
