Jeong Hur is an artist born in Seoul, South Korea working in lens-based media in New York. He conceives of self-portraiture as a process of personal affirmation in the face of existential doubt. Working with large-format black-and-white film, he focuses on the details and textures of his body in each of his photographs. He then manipulates his negatives in the darkroom to create abstract patterns that obstruct and complicate his images. In this way, he stages his own disappearance while simultaneously asserting his presence through his performative traces. Starting with a solo exhibition in Korea in 2015, he has continued exhibiting his works through multiple exhibitions in New York and Seoul
