HEEJIN JANG
Artist Statement

My work manifests itself in the forms of interactive performances, and video installation that include sound objects. The decay of audiovisual geographies dismantles the narrative of sound and image. In the performances, the interaction between machines and I turns into a ritual that attacks the flow of time and space.

Excessive amounts of glitches, delays and reversed audio and video generate a sensory overload by forcing all these elements to collide and clash. The mass of visual imagery and soundscapes intertwines the time and space into chaos, bailing out of all the possibility of interpretations. The process of self-cancellation breaks down the common nature of time embedded in the sonic and visual experiences that we negotiate between our senses and reality.

By reediting and overlaying language, pop-culture phenomenon, fandom and issues of propaganda, I remix the moment that when the act of looking, googling, youtubing, and consuming certain audiovisual culture turns into a political positioning.
