DESCRIPTION

itinerant_sends_for_itinerant is an artistic collaboration between Jane Jin Kaisen & Guston Sondin-Kung. They are invested in contested and emerging histories, places where historical truth is actively being disputed and its effects felt through traumatic dislocation. Through the mediums of film, video, and performance, we are drawn to multilayered, fragmented, and diasporic perspectives, which recognize the subjective within history and take into account the various dynamics of race, class and gender in a transnational perspective.

She holds an MA in Art Theory and Communication from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Art from The University of California Los Angeles, and she participated in The Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program. Jane Jin has exhibited her artwork at Kunsthallen Brandts, Nikolaj Contemporary Art Center, Museum of Contemporary Art Roskilde, and The National Museum of Photography in Denmark, Malmö Konsthall in Sweden, Videonale13in Germany, The2009 Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale amongst many other venues.
