Jean-Julien Pous

Video Artist

Jean-Julien Pous is an artist who creates video installations and films. Born in Wuhan in 1984, he lives and works between Seoul and Bordeaux. His work, at the intersection of French, Korean and Chinese cultures, takes a poetic look at the different states of matter, the body, the ephemeral nature of existence, the need for touch and contact in a dematerialized world.

His works have been exhibited at the National Museum of Korea, the National Museums of Gyeongju, Jeju, Busan, Hangeul, Cheonggyecheon, Gwangju Asia Culture Center, as well as the city hall of Paris Centre and the Wuxi History Museum, China.

He also works on comissioned films and animated sequences for documentaries (Netflix, Arte) and brands (New York Fashion Week, Chanel, Lenovo, Millet, the Spanish Tourist Board).
