La Chasse-Galerie, 2016
Photographic prints and texts
Based on haphazard interviews with participants, Yeondoo Jung created contemporary versions of the legend of the Chasse-Galerie (“flying canoe”) during his summer 2016 residency. He is thus suggesting that the imagination has the power to upset our preconceived notions, enabling us to take a fresh look at our history and world.
