Jake Sun exhibited new work for his solo exhibition One & Other, accompanied by a written essay by Tara Heffernan: The Conception Of Abstraction In Audio/Visual Installation: Appropriation, site specificity and reflexivity in the work of Jake Sun.
Jake Sun works predominantly in new media constructing immersive audio-visual installations investigating subjective dialogues and engagements with culture. Through his abstract installations he also investigates notions of paradox, unknowing and the sublime whilst positioning the viewer to question our modes of experiencing, perceiving and producing. Sun’s work segments these themes through a process of appropriation and remix.
