Yuki Jungesblut is an artist working with various forms of narrative investigation, photography, installation and film. She seeks out potentialities and instances of overlap between imagination, fiction and reality, and liminality in general. Many of her multi- layered projects are dedicated to the construction and communication of thought spaces around specific subjects matters – often underdetermined states like waiting or ennui or explore emotional territories tied to collective and individual memory. Her freestyle research aims to combine analysis and associative play with aesthetic pleasure.Yuki Jungesblut is chronically curious, a lay environmentalist, an avid explorer of imaginary and real worlds and has a penchant for combining the seemingly disparate. Her most recent work is the artist book Kirin Quest – based on a project that playfully investigates the cultural interconnections of the countries bordering the East China Sea. In this project that via text and photography looks at various instances of myths, nature, culture and travel, Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark serves as a travel companion and guidebook, and the qilin, much like the eponymous Snark becomes the elusive Leitmotiv of the narration.
