Since 2003 atelierJAK has been working in America, South Korea, and Germany on their film project SOUL BLINDNESS.
Jangyoung Jung (*1973, Busan, Korea) and Andreas Geisselhardt (*1974, Leonberg, Deutschland) have been working together as atelierJAK. They prefer to be represented through their artwork, ideally free from subjective charging.
Since 2013, their current artwork centers around the project „Soul Blindness“. A person called JAK is the center of this project. He is suffering from visual agnosia, a disorder, which translates to Soul Blindness in German (Seelenblindheit). Agnosia is a form of neuro-psychological disruption, in which people suffering from it, can well perceive their environment, but are nonetheless unable to recognize objects and faces or to relate them accordingly to their correct functions or contexts.
atelierJAKs technique uses multiple methods and media. Aside from sculpture, drawing, writing, and language, especially the use of digital procedures plays an important role for the artists.
The plot of the movie evolves from exhibition to exhibition, until finally leading up to a major movie, consisting of 30 scenes, each three minutes long.
