Blank Verse, Youngdon Jung | PhotoIreland Festival 2016

1 July - 22 August 2016

Launch: 1st July, 7pm
Running: 2nd July - 30th Sept
Location: The Copper House Gallery

This July, PhotoIreland presents two recent bodies of work by Korean photographer Youngdon Jung, Wondering Wandering (2011-15) and Ants (2013-16).

Both projects Wondering Wandering and Ants were born out of the careful observation of Jung’s immediate surroundings; one offers the atomised view of the human figure, lost and seen from his high-rise apartment, while the other one seeks to understand the very experience of the familiar.

Youngdon Jung’s work was selected last year by an international jury of professionals as the winner of the Portfolio Award at PhotoIreland Festival 2015, and this exhibition at The Copper House Gallery is part of the recognition.

With special thanks to The Copper House Gallery, and to the Korean Embassy in Dublin.
