Self-Portrait (2008-2013) is a performance without an audience, undertaken only to be photographed. Jun Ahn placed her body at the edge of high-rise buildings and took self-portraits. Her work is based on the theme of gravity, and compares living to the phenomenon of “free fall”. In addition to this project, Gibellina will also host a series of self-portraits shot in 2020 after a very heartfelt personal loss.
Ahn Jun is a South Korean photographer currently living and working in Seoul. She explores the hidden beauty of the world that lies beyond perception and the charming features of performance, capturing surreal moments within the context of reality. She exhibited at Images Vevey in 2018.
