Jesse Chun
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Carroll Gardens



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is an investigation of the codes and constructs of place, transit, and home. I engage with found sources, and the elements of language, meaning, and context to reinterpret the pre-existing notions of dwelling and belonging.
