Born in 1979 in South Korea, Jazoo Yang lives and works in Berlin. She is interested in the evolution of cities and the nostalgic poetry that emerges from working-class neighborhoods demolished at high speed to make way for huge apartment buildings or offices. For this series, she went through the lanes and condemned houses of Busan in Korea to take scraps of it: cracked paint, mattress foam, mosquito net, peeled off wallpaper, plastics… She then arranges them like abstract collages, frozen by a transparent resin revealing the materials and their fragility.
