Jesse Chun’s interdisciplinary work begins with examining legal and historic documents, linguistic pedagogies, and records of cultural memory. She uses text, digital media, sound, sculpture, and publishing as ways to unlearn and re-interpret language’s relationship to bureaucracy, power, and place. Her practice considers new poetics that are rooted in diasporic and postcolonial languaging, and possibilities of untranslatability.
Jesse Chun has exhibited work at Queens Museum; Brooklyn Academy of Music; and Bronx Museum of the Arts, all New York, among others.jessechun.com
