soJin Chun (Toronto) Artist in Residence Artist Talk at MAWA

  • MAWA 611 Main Street Winnipeg Canada (map)

Free. Everyone is welcome. Through video and installation, soJin Chun creates narratives that emerge between spaces and cultures, inspired by her experience living in the Korean diaspora in Bolivia and Canada. She has participated in screenings, exhibitions and artist residencies worldwide, including the CAPACETE residency in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her videos are distributed by GIV (Montreal), CFMDC (Toronto) and V-Tape (Toronto). During her residency at MAWA, she will be revisiting video footage from Brazil, Taiwan and Canada, to edit an experimental video that looks at how the global economy contributes to the gentrification of local communities. She looks forward to connecting with Winnipeg artists and activist communities, to engage in dialogue about how these issues are reflected locally.
