The Future Perfect” Group exhibition, Ebenböckhaus/ Munich, Germany (Funded by Landeshauptstadt München)



- If we had already arrived in the future, where every unknown question of the future had been answered, how would creativity respond to it? -

This was the project brief to contemplate, and in response, I started magnifying the soil, stone, dust and particles gathered around my studio space. It opened up the concept of the life cycle by shifting away from a human-centric perspective, instead ‘seeing’ the universe that can be found by looking into the trivial around us. 

In a handful of soil lies the sedimented remains of those who lived and passed before us, leaving behind their accumulated bodies. Though the future may not be tangible yet, we can envision its eventual arrival. By returning to the very ground beneath our feet, we can anticipate a warm reunion with our predecessors. My future is laid in the soil within my hands.

The “Future Perfect” project attempts to provide a glimpse into the future in multi-interdisciplinary exhibitions and events from literature: Sujin Seo, Cheon Seonran, art: Danilo BastioneNikolai Vogel and music: Taehun Lee, Ardhi Engl

The exhibition runs between 17 May - 2 June 2024 in Ebenböckhaus.





‘Good night, sweet dreams’ one says this phrase for granted at the end of the day. Yet this very mundane is an unachievable one for those who are in threat of their very life in every moment. Until all of our dreams become a little sweeter- Sending solidarity to Gaza, Ukraine and for all who are in suffering.

‘Collective Breathing’ Drawing workshop
Somerset House/ London


Two-day drawing workshop at Somerset House as a part of a public-facing event in February 2020. In this workshop, Jayoon tested the idea of using the body and breathing as the perceptive organ instead of being sorely dependent on the eyes and hands.

Questioning what is it that we are seeing from the world and what is it that we intend to capture in the drawing process. In each 2 -3 hours set, Jayoon facilitated a loosely instructed drawing space for the public, where participants breath, move, gaze and draw collectively.

Jayoon presented her over a decade-long practice dedicated to depicting the unseen and intangible human qualities that she observes within herself as well as the people around her. She presented her initial motivation and how the practice developed based on automatic drawing.

Collaboration with ninaian project

Jayoon Choi & ninaian project (Hyun Min Park) formed in 2013 after they met via twitter and instantly took notice to each others' work. Hyun Min is a musician who explores layers of intensive emotional conflicts in sound, whereas Jayoon uses drawing and moving image as her tool to depict unnoticed elements in everyday life.

‘Conversation Between Sound & Drawing’ is their second collaborative project, yet their first attempt on an improvised performance between the two medium.

It then turned into a wordless conversation through sound and drawing, which simultaneously inspires and stimulates each other’s output. As if they are taking steps into obscure creative zones of their own.
