Phantom Limb

Phantom Limb brings together five artists to expand and re-contextualise what it means to self-identify as Korean within a Western context.

at Cody Dock

Phantom Limb is an exhibition centering the practices of Korean diaspora artists Dylan Mira (Los Angeles), Jette Hye Jin Mortensen (Roskilde), Joan Oh (New York City), Tiffany Jaeyeon Shin (New York City), and Zadie Xa (London).

orean diaspora identity straddles multiple geographies, with one leg in a host country and another phantom limb reaching towards Korea. Phantom Limb brings together five artists to expand and re-contextualise what it means to self-identify as Korean within a Western context. Through immersive installation, video, sculpture, and a programme of events, the artists work to build a lexicon of Korean diaspora imagery. Cody Dock’s unique architecture and location on the River Lea intertwines with the themes of movement, fluidity and ungroundedness found within the works.

The exhibition is accompanied by a programme of free events, including a choir performance by Jette Hye Jin Mortensen with members of Musarc, a fermentation workshop by Joan Oh, and a performative lecture by Tiffany Jaeyeon Shin.
