Jayoon Choi is a London based artist.
︎︎︎ Wanna talk to her?

Jayoon’s work is about
 ︎︎︎ What does it mean to be human?
        ︎︎︎What value do we possess or do not possess to be human?
 ︎︎︎ Seeking a tangible form or an experience to convey such questions

︎︎︎ drawing as a tool to actualise the investigation (of the above questions)
    ︎︎︎ Automatic drawing, moving image & space projection

Longer version 
︎︎︎ Jayoon’s practice explores the vast spectrum of our internal selves that is buried beneath the physical body we own through drawing and moving images. Or perhaps, questioning how much of the physical body we own speaks about ourselves.

Whilst exploring ‘human’, Jayoon strips off any man-made signifier such as time, gender or culture. Instead, she depicts androgynous figures in humans, investigating the 'thing' that the physical body contains within. 'What moves this corps?' one of the hwadu from Buddhist teaching hints at what this human quality may be.

Ironically she uses fragments of the human body to give a form to the intangible internal-scape and reveal what may exist beyond. Using herself as a testing ground, Jayoon uses automatic drawing to tap into the realm of intuition, following what one line may lead her to the next to explore the source of creativity. This challenges the current notion of confusing machine-learned image generation as image creation.

These attempt aims to embrace what all human being may experience internally throughout their life, beyond their gender, race, belief or whatever tags them in the conventional world.

Jayoon is also 
︎︎︎A Senior lecturer at Illustration Programme at Camberwell College of Arts and an Associate Lecturer at MA Graphic Communication at Central Saint Martins.
