Jacky Jaan-Yuan Kuo 郭展源 (born in Taiwan, 1994) works with photography-centered and site-specific approaches. He explores the paradox of intimacy between the domestic environment and the public sphere; and how photography as a medium of communication generates obscurity and absurdity in contemporary society. Jacky is currently pursuing his master’s degree in Fine Art at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Norway.
