Kacy Jung's artwork also emphasizes the understanding of self. Thinking about the objectification of Asian women, her work symbolizes strength and amplifies the beauty of fragility. In addition, Jung's work exposes her anxiety of being part of the disappearing middle class and an immigrant in America.
Kacy Jung is a Taiwanese visual artist working with photography, photo-sculpture, and performance, based in San Francisco. Before she began her journey in art, she was working in biomedical science for many years when she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an artist.
Since then, she continuously investigates how socialization shapes the construction and reconstruction of identity. The subject often intertwines with the manipulative nature of the capitalist system, the anxiety of being part of the disappearing middle class, and her immigrant experience in the USA. Kacy's works have been shown/awarded internationally. She is the acceptant of the Harlan Jackson Diversity Scholarship from the San Francisco Art Institute and Headlands Center for the Arts Affiliate Artist Program. Her works have been shown at Berkeley Art Museum, De Young Museum in California, Hastings College in Nebraska, and multiple galleries and private collections in the USA and Taiwan. She is currently participating in a two-year-long Studio Artist Program at Root Division Gallery in San Francisco, CA, USA.
