Ruang MES 56
Jl. Mangkuyudan 56A, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Eunji Cho is a Seoul born artist, performer, video maker and also working as an artistic director. She explores the slippage that arises when a modern subject enters another territory and becomes a minority, colonized, and the “other.” In her recent works, the language that was generated from distinct, non-human perceptual systems of organisms was presented and spoken. Cho has been continuously examining beings that defy existing classification.
Her works have been presented including her 9th solo exhibition Dancing Between Two Earths in Alternative Space LOOP, Seoul, Korea (2020), Anthropocene: Korea x Brazil in Sao Paulo Video Brazil (2021), Ecological Sense in Nam Jun Paik Art Center, Yongin, Korea (2019), Immortality in the Cloud in Ilmin Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea (2019), Voiceless in Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea (2018), Paranoid Zone in National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea (2016), Plastic Myths in ACC.
