Sunwoo Jung (1991) is a South Korean ceramic artist currently living and working in Amsterdam.

With a fascination for ceramics, and based on continued interest in everyday objects, she questions the functionality, efficiency, and clarity of the society. By reconfiguring found objects and combining them with ceramics, she wishes to purposefully deconstruct their functions and convert them into equivocal beings, or to create illusionary scenes in which the presence recalls absence, leading to the imagination.

She engages clay as a bridge between reality and imagination, bringing the sense of time into play. Through her ongoing practices, she ambitiously aims to unearth the value of opaque things that are vanishing in the domain of time and brings them up to the surface of today's rapid wave.
