Junebum Park is an artist based in Korea. Through a clever shift of perspective, Junebum transforms the most ordinary of environments into extraordinary scenes in which the artist’s hands interfere with the forces and currents in a way that is both comic and timely.
Parks video works have been shown internationally and we are delighted that the artist has accepted a commission for Manchester.
Junebum Park has been commissioned by CUBE to develop new work for an exhibition in its main gallery, opening on the 2nd September and running until the 5th October. This commission will be a world premier.
This project, in collaboration with the Chinese Art centre and the Asia Triennial 2011, will for the first time directly engage with the gallery’s external grade 2 listed architecture. The artist will playfully manipulate the face of the building. This time consuming process will gradually expose and reflect impacts of the current recession.
