JUJU U in Conversation with Yukie Kamiya

April 6, 2018

ACC grantee JUJU U, who is currently on her ACC New York Fellowship from Korea and is an artist-in-residence at Residency Unlimited in Brooklyn. JUJU U and Yukie Kamiya, Director of the Japan Society Gallery, will examine different strategies for visual representations of culture including the artist's expanded use of craft related techniques that vsual artist JUJU U applies to the study and exploration of a wide range of unconventional materials. The ongoing photographic series Super Museum Project is an example of this. Begun by the Seoul based artist in 2012, the photographs feature everyday items displayed in supermarkets from around the world and highlight how closely they align themselves to relics of fine art normally seen in museum contexts.  The North, a more politicized body of work by JUJU U is another manifestation of her unique artistic methodology incorporating North Korean propaganda printed material.
