Jun Ahn

South Korea (1981)
Espace Images Vevey

In the Self-Portrait series, Jun Ahn photographed herself in extreme situations, perched hundreds of meters above a void, on a window sill, atop a skyscraper or a staircase. Without any special effects, these self-portraits explore the notions of space in large cities as well as self-representation on social networks, and the limitations of the selfie. The exhibition comprised a scenography specifically elaborated for a bedroom at the Hôtel des Trois Couronnes, as well as an installation in the hotel’s lobby that played with the sense of dizziness her images generate.
