Park Jae-Pyung and Park Jongbin are an artist collective based in Berlin and Seoul.
They make films with fictional, documental, and experimental aspects, as well as site-specific theatres and media installations in both public and digital spaces. Their work focuses on exploring the hidden narratives behind urban spaces in relation to their socio-political and historical contexts.
They have deep interest in the relationship between individuals and the spaces, abandonness and ruination, minority and immigrant identities, discrimination and exclusion, social marginalization, and the exploitation of non-human beings, in particular animal rights issues.
In this context, their work examines existences that are trapped in isolated spaces, including those in a video frame, an abandoned underground, an empty space in the city, a psychiatric state such as nightmare, insomnia, depression related to unconsciousness and traumatic memory, and in an apartment during natural disasters or pandemic.
Park Jongbin studied theatre directing in Seoul, and since 2019 has been studying Spatial Strategies (Raumstrategien) at Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, with her master project planned for 2023.
Park Jae-Pyung studied Film, multimedia and fine art in Seoul and works as a filmmaker and video artist. They work on their own in playwriting, film and video, installation, directing, and production, sometimes collaborating with artists from various disciplines, depending on the project.
