Che Onejoon​

Through the mediums of photography, film, or installation, Che Onejoon’s works have traced Seoul’s red-light district after the ban of prostitution in 2004, monuments in Africa that symbolize diplomatic ties with North Korea, and underground bunkers abandoned by American troops in South Korea. Once a staff photographer in a police unit, his works often stirr up questions about socio-political changes behind what appears before our eyes. In the Jakarta Biennale 2021: ESOK, he will be taking us to uncover his next findings.
