Yva Jung, Monday Morning at Departure Lounge
Yva Jung, Monday Morning
Starts: 31 May 2019 at 1:00 PM
Ends: 13 Jul 2019 at 6:00 PM

Yva Jung is fascinated by planetary rhythms, the cycles of life and death and the stories we generate in life. Monday Morning, her UK solo exhibition, brings together photographs, video pieces and sculptures exploring the linguistic roots of ‘Monday’ meaning “day of the moon”. Jung also examines notions about the moon, its phases and cycles and the parallel rhythms of female life.

Using fleeting and temporary forms, notably the natural phenomenon of morning dew, Jung examines uprooted-ness and loss through a profoundly poetic lens.

In advance of this exhibition, during a performance at Luton’s Mall in April, Jung bartered sculptures made from harvested morning dew for stories and experiences shared by passers-by. Jung uses these stories as inspiration for a series of new works on paper, recording the transactions between the artist and her “customers”. An illustrated booklet inspired by this exchange will be given away to visitors at the closing event on Saturday 13 July.

Monday Morning is generously funded by Arts Council England and Revoluton Arts. It is organised by Departure Lounge and supported by Luton Culture.
