​Swiss artist Florence Jung is the international resident artist at the Art Cube Artists’ Studios

15.9.16- 22.9.16

Artist: Florence Jung

Florence Jung will arrive for an international residency at the Art Cube Artists’ Studios, Jerusalem during September 2016.

The young critically acclaimed Swiss artist will create a new performance piece for Manofim Festival for Contemporary Art (September 15- 22 2016):

She will set up a private intelligence service composed of Jerusalem based philosophers- the IS/PD (Intelligence Service/Philosophers Department). Their mission will be to ensure the surveillance of Manofim festival by spying the public and festival sites. They will generate a report every evening, containing notes and analysis, which will be sent to the Protective Security Department of Shin Beth.

Artists’ Studios, 26 HaUman Street, 4th floor, Talpiot Industrial Zone, Jerusalem

About the artist:

Kidnapper, Disney princess, luxury goods smuggler, punk stripper, chicken smuggler, crook, pizza delivery driver, Marxist nail stylist, clandestine street seller… Florence Jung invents characters and situations that seep into exhibitions where no one can unravel reality from its staging. Everything is true, she says, but nothing proves this: the artist does not document and erases her tracks, turning her work into rumor and rumors into works.

Florence Jung lives in Biel, Bienne, Switzerland.
Her last projects were for  the parallel events of Manifesta 11 in Zurich, and for the Swiss Art Awards exhibition in Basel for Art Basel 2016.
She exhibited in numerous institutions and off-spaces in Switzerland and abroad including the Kunsthalle 3000, Vienna, Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris, Random Institute, ABC Berlin, Oslo10, Basel and Helmhaus, Zurich, The Aeschlimann-Corti Förderpreis (2015), the Swiss Performance Art Award (2013), the Werkstipendium of Zurich City (2013) and the Schweizer Werkbund Förderpreis (2012) awarded her work.


Florence Jung’s Residency at the Art Cube Artists’ Studios, and her performance pieces within the framework of the Manofim Festival for Contemporary Art were made possible by the Jerusalem Foundation through the support of:

Dr. Georg and Josi Guggenheim Foundation, Switzerland
Saly Frommer Foundation, Switzerland
​and thanks to the support of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia
