Summary

Opening: Friday 6 March 2020, 18:00

Working across text, sculpture and performance, Sophie Jung’s work navigates the politics of re/presentation and challenges the reductive desire to conclude. Her texts focus on disrupting scripted hegemonies through subversively introduced tremors. She employs humour, shame, the absurd, raw anger, rhythm and rhyme, slapstick, hardship, friendship and a constant stream of slippages. Her sculptural work consists of bodies made up of both found and haphazardly produced attributes and defines itself against the dogma of an Original Idea or a Universal Significance. Instead it stands as a network of abiding incompletion, an ever-changing choir of urgencies and pleasures, traumas and manifestations that communally relay between dominant and minor themes. Sophie Jung is invested in triggering a decategorising of concepts and a deconceptualisation of categories and understands her approach to “stuff” – both legible utensil and metaphoric apparition – as an uncertain queering slash querying of historical materialism.
