JSF BERLIN: Artist talk Young-jun Tak

JSF BERLIN: Artist talk Young-jun Tak

Since September 2023, the Julia Stoschek Foundation presents a new series of solo presentations by emerging artists called DOUBLE FEATURE, which will take place across JSF Berlin and Düsseldorf simultaneously.


For its inaugural edition, Berlin-based artist Young-jun Tak presents two recent films, Wish You a Lovely Sunday (2021) and Wohin? (2022), which will play in a loop in the galleries. Both shot in Berlin, these works consider how place, architecture, movement, and belief inform community and queerness.


Young-jun Tak (b. 1989 in Seoul, South Korea) examines sociocultural and psychological mechanisms that shape belief systems. Mixing media, techniques, and subject matter, Tak pursues obfuscation as a mode of critique. In his videos, sculptures, and installations, Tak often exposes human bodies in the context of polarizing norms and conventions. Tak has had solo exhibitions at Wanås Konst (Knislinge, Sweden, 2023), O—Overgaden (Copenhagen, 2023), Efremidis (Berlin, 2022), SOX (Berlin, 2022), and Fragment (Moscow, 2021). He has participated in international exhibitions such as the Lyon Biennale (2022), the Berlin Biennale (2020), and the Istanbul Biennial (2017), among others. He currently lives and works in Berlin.


In conversation with Lisa Long, Artistic Director of JSF, Young-jun Tak talks about his work.
