Jiyun Jung is an artist who creates a series of works in different mediums based on dreams and desires in the context of gender and female sexuality. Jung was born in South Korea and currently lives in Chicago. Jiyun Jung often works with her legs, which is about feminine power, gender ambiguity, voyeurism, narcissistic conciliation and psychologically and socio-cultural identification. Her family history and Korean culture has expectations on the first-born child, which upholds traditional gender roles. She questions these roles and identities of gender in the patriarchal culture and society by using her legs to form an octopus who is an alien in her dreams (octopi can change their gender).
