Biography

Performance Artist

EunSun Heo is a Korean visual artist who strokes emotions with performance. She is mainly interested in bringing out the age-old emotions in the space experienced in the everyday life of the past and expressing them as visual images. She participated in a number of group exhibitions and festivals in Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Belgium, and Germany with the start of the PANASIA Performance Festival in 2014, and she continues to work on videos, installation, and photography, focusing on performance work, along with various experiments covering complex genres (art, dance, theater, etc.).

At the heart of her work is always the keyword ‘water.’ Through the work of tears pouring out while peeling onions, washing the trampled cloth with water, enduring the weight of wet blankets, and nothing but floating on the water, she actively hopes that these performance will be in line with the deep-rooted emotion of universality at the same time as relieving the individual’s old emotions. Her work has used repeated physical acts to create a clear and candid metaphor of familiar emotions that any member of society can experience in any way, using her own body as an image and a catalyst for the conveyance of meaning.

She also always speculates about the site of emotional connection and exchange with the audience through art because she thinks that the artist’s work is completed only when there is a connection between the audience’s behavior and reaction. She majored in painting in college, but this is why she uses performance that allows her to interact with the audience more directly as her main work. She plans to continue to experiment as an art so that the time and space that connect to the audience can reach the deep-rooted emotion of universality beyond personal affairs.
