Hayoun Kwon

South Korean-born artist Hayoun Kwon will be at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive this week to present her avant-garde films and virtual reality experiments. Now residing in Paris, Kwon uses memories and interviews to explore themes of immigration and political identity. One of her newest virtual reality works, 489 Years, is based on an interview with a South Korean soldier and serves as an account of a mission in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. The Bird Lady (L’oiseleuse), meanwhile, is an unorthodox fairy tale about a French woman who transforms her apartment into an aviary. Kwon will present both of these works on Nov. 12, but if you can’t make it, her digital work I Suddenly Hear the Flap of Wings will be shown as part of the museum’s On the Hour program, which invites artists to create new work specifically for its outdoor screen. According to Kwon, “For 3D reality it is at first and foremost about a situation, it is about ‘diving into’: a feeling, something lived, an experience.” Get ready to dive in.
