In my life as an architect, when I visit an attractive building or space, I naturally feel curious about the internal structure on the back side of the walls, ceilings and floors, which is usually invisible from the outside. This habit of thinking has led me to develop a morphological interest in the internal structure of not only spaces but also living things and nature.
Then, one day, at an exhibition of Man Ray, while looking at Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres's "La Grande Odalisque" and "La Grande Baigneuse", and Man Ray's "Le Violon d'Ingres", I wondered how the smooth, inconspicuous ridge of the spine from the neck to the buttocks would look from the inside of the body rather than from the outside.
To satisfy this desire, I debossed the outline of an average adult woman's spine, about 160 cm tall, on a piece of leather covering a wooden frame, and colored the surface blood red.
In this artwork, the mountain-like spine ridges we usually see are caved inward like a trench and the pelvic area creates a crater-like depression.
With a reinterpretation of a classic figurative painting of a human back, this morphological landscape, in which everything is inverted, attempts to reveal the traces of invisible structures and laws lurking behind our daily lives by trying to look at what we usually see from the other side, that is to say, by reframing and reconstructing the way we see things.
