|Yeon Sung is an artist-researcher who is based in both South Korea and The Netherlands. Trained in industrial design engineering and graphic design, her politically-charged practice traverses disciplinary boundaries with prototyping, filmmaking, and writing, in accordance with methods based on chemistry, physics, and environmental science.
As a child of a traumatized generation of colonial occupation, her work focuses on untold narratives shaped by political realities. Her approach to decolonization includes the use of non-human matters as transversal human agencies, which transcend time and territories.
Currently, she is working on a research project called “The Matter Trilogy,” which is a multifaceted series that aims to analyze non-human materials and the critical stories they contain, from the colonial past to the ecological realities of the present day.
