LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
I focus on intangible fragments that constitute our surroundings. I reveal these with sculptural performances.
I observe daily events that are repetitive. From that observation, I question how everyday is constructed and how we are shaped by the immaterial.
We are dominated by various qualities and notions without forms - conventions, social engagements, language, measuring unit, common law, institution, or paradigm - that are the human constructs.
My work sheds light on these subliminal influences in reality. There are the questions of how we perceive those, how can they be depicted, and how to reach their essence.
I bring non-existing space into the pre-existing space. On the other side, pre-existing objects take forms that do not exist. With this ‘mise-en-place play’, I reflect on the intrinsic value of the immaterial that is omnipresent in the universe.
My work is a material assemblage that dissolves into its surroundings. I consider all that constitute the surroundings including viewers and the environment as parts of my work. The work becomes malleable as there are constant interactions between these elements. I often let go of control over my work, and let the work naturally choose its own shape while subtly transforming itself. Each element takes a position as a performer, providing spatio-temporal experiences. This performance from within the work gives viewers a space to explore their own spatial configurations, and the work evolves around mutual relations. This process prioritizes the visual possibilities the work can generate over the anticipated results or specific forms. The space I wish to create is rather a neutral one, with minimum intervention of mine. With this setting where each viewer forms one’s own perception and multi-sensory experience, I try to materialize the way how we affect and are affected by the immaterial.
WHO I AM
My dissatisfaction of an ordinary movement deformed the trace.
