Anne Duk Hee Jordan
Anne Duk Hee Jordan (*1978 in Korea) lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin and continued with a Master in Fine Arts at the Institut für Raumexperimente in Berlin under Olafur Eliasson. Transience and transformation are the central themes in the work of Anne Duk Hee Jordan. Through movement and performance, Jordan gives materiality another dimension – she builds motorized sculptures and creates edible landscapes. Her sculptures are intended to draw the viewer into the present and open a dialogue between natural phenomena, philosophy and art. Jordan shifts the focus away from humans towards the entire ecology.
