Hyun Jin Cho is a London-based artist from South Korea. She holds a BFA in Korean Painting from Ewha Womans University and an MA in Drawing as Process from Kingston University. Her recent works focus on moving image form; they are often triggered by a series of recorded interviews that develop through multiple operations of translation and re-staging.
Her most recent video, Meet the Artist (shown as part of Away Day, a weekend art in three parks in South London) used this method - transcribing and editing the original interview recordings into a single dialogue - then translated into a performance-reading by two actors for the final video. She is currently working on a multi-faceted project Is that your work? Was it fun? which began during her artist residency at Gyeonggi Creation Center (Ansan, Korea) earlier this year.
