A solo exhibition of New York-based photographer Ina Jang will be held at G/P gallery from April 13 to May 28. Ina Jang was born in South Korea in 1982. Jang’s creative method includes layering cut-outs physically and digitally to create a playful photograph.

Her new work ‘Mrs. Dalloway’ refers to English writer Virginia Woolf, one of the foremost modernist authors of the twentieth century. Jang’s collage work is composed of cut-out film negatives of contemporary paintings that hint at the female characters or scenery from Woolf’s novel.

The abstract-like images create a feeling of escape from the definitive, inviting the viewer to stand between issues associated with photography. Issues explored include the boundaries of various problems surrounding photographs: for example, appearance, originality and reproduction; gender relations, such as observing and being observed; and uniqueness and anonymity.
