Yuni Hong Charpe is a Japanese-born artist from the Zainichi community(Koreans in Japan), who lives and works in France and Japan. After moving to France in 2005, Yuni studied at the École nationale supérieure d’arts de Paris-Cergy (2013-2015).

At the crossroads of dance and the visual arts, her work often begins with reflections on place-specific histories and personal memories, exploring diversity and instability by questioning identities constructed from normative attributes. In 2020, she led a research project selected as part of the “Joint Usage / Research” program at the Kyoto Performing Arts Center. In the same year, she created a video-installation Répète as part of an experimental residency at CND, which she then presented at the Land of Clear Water AAIC festival at MBA Gifu (jury prize). For 2022, she has benefited from residencies at Kinosaki International Art Center in Japan and at ORO-Honoluluin Nantes. She was an associate researcher at the Kyoto Institute of Contemporary Arts in 2021-2022.

She has presented performances and participated in group exhibitions, including: 65e Salon de Montrouge, Beffroi (2021) / Festival INACT, Strasbourg (2020) / 100% performances, Grande Halle de la Villette (2019) / Festival PERFORM, Art Sonje Center, Seoul, South Korea (2017) / Genbi Oubo, Hiroshima Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan (2017) / Grand Bassin, Piscine Pierre et Marie Curie, Mulhouse (2017) / IMAGES MOBILES, Ygrec, Paris (2017)….
