Jun Ahn is a South Korean artist who studied art history in California before going on to study photography at the Pratt Institute in New York. Fascinated by our perception of the world, she explores, through an “obsessive and repetitive” work, the structures that make it up and freezes, with her camera, the moments that are too fast to be seen by the human eye. In 2018, the photographer published two monographs, One Life and Self-Portrait, which showcased her attraction to the idea of gravity. Exhibited in her native country but also internationally (Lianzhou Museum of Photography, the 63 Art Museum in Seoul, or the CASE Tokyo Space), her work was distinguished in 2019 by Paris Photo. It is now part of many public collections: JP Morgan, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea, Statoil, in Norway.
