soJin Chun’s Camouflage lightheartedly takes up the notion of assimilation through performances for video. Chun assumes various innocuous positions in the architectural and natural landscape of “Treasure Hill,” a heritage site in Taipei. In six short scenes the artist’s obscured body exposes the underlying correlation between culture, space, physicality, and belonging.

This video was conceived during a residency at the Treasure Hill Artist Village in Taipei, Taiwan with the Traffic Jam Collective. Being of Asian-descent, the artist had a natural camouflage on the streets of Taipei being mistaken for a local or Chinese. This inspire the idea that Chun could blend into the urban landscape of the village playing with notions of physical homogeneity among the East Asian population.
