JANE JIN KAISEN: PARALLAX CONJUNCTURES
JANE JIN KAISEN:
NOVEMBER 5, 2021 – JANUARY 30, 2022
Parallax Conjunctures presents the work of South Korea-born, Copenhagen-based interdisciplinary artist, Jane Jin Kaisen. Working in video installation, experimental film, lens-based media, text, and archival practices, Kaisen’s work is shaped by extensive historical research and community engagement. Kaisen will showcase several recent projects engaging deeply with topics ranging from the Korean War to the role of women in histories of resistance. Among the works being presented in Parallax Conjunctures, the video installation Sweeping the Forest Floor (2020) is centered in the complex legacies surrounding the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea.
These projects explore collective memory, borders, and patterns of migration, as applied to the Korean peninsula and the West. Within these contexts, Kaisen presents moving multimedia installations grounded in experimental, artist-led research.
