Enzy Jhang, Talent Coordinator is a multimedia installation that explores experiences of cultural dislocation and the formation of identity. Living between South Korea and the Netherlands, and unable to fully incorporate herself in either place, the artist’s characters become a way to escape from the discrimination she experienced. Societal expectations and pressures drive the formation of these characters.
This character, Enzy Jhang (Talent Coordinator), dresses up in office drag in both a serious and playful sense to pass as a corporate worker. She uses small, mundane details present in the workplace as fuel for satire, regaining narrative control over the perception of her multifaceted identity.
