Artist Statement

Heejin's work manifests itself in the forms of live sound performances, and video installations. The decay of audiovisual geographies dismantles the narrative of sound and image.

In her live sound performance, Heejin presents a set of improvised computer music. She arranges and synthesizes sonic spaces that draw from the everyday and the trivial, re-forming them into phenomenal situations of meditation or digitally induced panic. Distorting ambient, field recordings, and sound samples from the Internet, Jang creates a reverberating force that gets one lost in the echoes of invisible itineraries to the outer world.

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