Kyungwoo Chun



For the "Face of Face" series, Kyungwoo Chun invited young actors for a performance in his studio. The artist positioned the participants in front of a desk with pencil and paper. The task of the participants was to close their eyes, to focus on their appearance and themselves to portray themself. During the performance Kyungwoo Chun photographed the participants in a long time exposure. The resulting portrait he then overlaid with the drawn self-portrait of the respective person. (Face of Face).
In the portraits we see concentrated and completely absorbed people. The actors, who usually take on the role of other people were completely alone.
