"Plus/Minus" is based on the
concept of “coexistence”.
There are so many conflicting structures in
our world, male and female, blacks and whites, that I often get sad and feel
drained. But I know that embracing diversity, living harmoniously together and
embodying coexistence can bring happiness.
With this work, I attempted to express the
beauty of each of us from different backgrounds and historical contexts living
together, and how this world is made up from many points of views.
At the same time, this work is also an expression
that I cannot limit myself to just one character. I am aware that I have many
characters within me, and that different characters respond to different
situations as I encounter them. Sometimes it is one character and other times
it is a team of several characters dealing with a situation.
Every character that comes out of me, whether
positive or negative, is still "truly me". When I accept this, I am
able to feel very peaceful.
I believe that humans can embrace each
other and also embody a beautiful world through our individuality. Throughout
the series of “Plus/Minus”, I will continue to express "coexistence".
