Oh-Kyung Jang

: interdisciplinary performance artist 


I was astonished by the power of nonverbal communication and the collaborative process of improvisation. All were autonomous but collaborated towards a common goal. The joy and openness of choices, along with struggles and conflicts, alternated my perspective on the arts. In response to the constant changes, I had to be open-minded and respond quickly. It liberated me from intellectualizing feelings and emotions. Multi-dimensional awareness of my identity and capability brought freedom I had not imagined. I could synthesize my experiences. Performance was a plate that embraced it all.  


I observe each element in my performance with curiosity and authenticity. Physical movement helps me to stay grounded while opening up a communication channel with others. Voice is a measure of self-awareness and empowerment to declare one’s existence. My practice aims to focus on individuals' experiences to understand societal issues and create a channel for silenced voices.
