Channa Boon (1967, NL) engages with multi-media works encompassing film, video, performance, drawings and installation work. Her practice is often research based. Space, the object, the living body are all part of the so called ‘acoustic body’, bearing the potentiality of sound. Boon obtained her Masters at the Film Academy in Amsterdam, and travelled the world to develop the notion of the ‘acoustic body’ in public space, architecture, and through developing performance and video works in different residencies: El Quinto Pasajero, Museo Tambo, La Paz, …from their planet…Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia (curator H. Lux), Chang Dong Artist’s Studio’s Seoul, National Museum Seoul, South Korea, etc.
Boon teaches at the Fine Art and Composition departments of the Royal Academy of Art and Conservatory in The Hague, taught film at the pre-school training program of the Korea National University of Arts, had a research position at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, Italy and lectured at numerous places.
Her work is internationally shown at places and events such as 56th Venice Biennale ‘All The World’s Futures’ (IT), MINUS SPACE Brooklyn, NY, the Sioux Art Center, Iowa (USA), the CAC in Vilnius (LT),the EYE Film Museum, the International Film Festival Rotterdam (NL), Kunstraum Walcheturm Zürich (CH), the Kunstfabrik Am Flutgraben, Olaf Stüber Gallery Berlin (GE), the Mudeung Museum of Contemporary Art, Gwanju, Gallery Loop, the National Museum and the Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul (KR), and many others.
