Kyungwoo Chun, a German based Korean artist has been preoccupied with the fundamental question about man and the world, focusing on the notions of ‘relation’ and ‘time’. His works, beginning with portrait photography, stem from a peculiar interest in and concern for man, as well as the exploration of the true nature of photography. Chun experiments with form and medium, extending the width and depth of his artistic insight.
Kyungwoo Chun was born (1969) in Seoul. After his first study of Photography in Korea (1992) he moved to Germany, where he studied and started to work on his art projects in Europe. He has become known for his poetically blurred photographic portraits in a very unconventional way of dealing with time and space.
Since its foundation in 2007, Iann has organised a variety of projects ranging from the publication of the contemporary art photography magazine to curating exhibitions, publishing books, and running educational programs.
