Jung A Chang

My work presents a wrestling world in which the cyclical relationship between fiction and reality is explored.

Inspired by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung’s archetype theory and modern phenomena such as Donald Trump, Scientology, and YouTubers, my wrestlers tell a narrative that is a satirical approach to the destabilized post-Brexit/President Trump society that makes one ask “How did we end up here?”. The clash of ideology centralized by populism and fast entertainment led by internet culture may be faced with disdain, but in fact is no different from Greek mythology.
