As If Nothing…. The Artistic Meandering of Sung Neung kyung

 AS IF NOTHING… The Artistic Meandering of Sung Neung Kyung | Sung Neung Kyung


Sung Neung Kyung’s daily practice of art has escaped critical notice, yet he has been active for much longer and his influence is felt more widely than many realize. Sung’s conceptual actions, documented through photographs and performance artifacts, reflect his decades-long interest in everyday moments of exchange between people in a social context. He seeks out “something that is not yet art,” the daily action that “seems to be nothing” as raw material for his artistic practice. These small gestures create a “mosquito noise” by activating everyday elements of behavior into a resonant, politically charged buzz.
