Kyungwoo Chun is considered one of the most interesting artists on the international scene

 

Korean artist Kyungwoo Chun (Seoul, 1969) shows a selection of his works from 2004 to 2008, photographs from the Light Calligraphy, Versus and Thousands series. K.Chun uses long exposure photography and uses portrait as a form of self-knowledge, a genre that helps him explore personal relationships more deeply and with which he achieves intriguing portraits and images that make us reflect on the relationships between individual existence and universal time.

Considered one of the most interesting artists on the international scene, (his work has been shown practically around the world) Kyungwoo Chun has been using long exposures since 1996 when he discovered that by lengthening the exposure time he could capture with his camera, more than an image, a pictorial portrait and the character of the portrayed.

The photographer alternates the use of video with photography and performance, three actions that allow him to prepare situations in which the public has a leading role. Chun starts from reality, later he manages to transform the meaning of the work thanks to the look he brings from a new reading and interpretation related to fragility, but not only of our identity, but also of our character and our will.
