Korea 

In 1988, I was born and raised in Korea. Throughout the 29 years of my life, I've been addressed by many names; sometimes a woman, a student, a worker, or an artist. At every moment in my life, I've tried to read the coordinates of where I stood and listened to what I was being called. And at every moment, I was conscious of the weight of those names. As a result, I've come to possess several faces, voices, and gestures according to the many names.  

My work until 2013 mostly focused on 'characters and roles' to create tools that allowed oversetting the given roles. Since then, I am focusing on the stage, in other words, the background and situation on which the character stands. I take the approach of representing a particular situation in visual signs. A scene represented in this way does not have a role, script or instruction. The scene aims at being a location in which unspecified multiple spectators can become the protagonist of the scene or a flexible picture which allows them to intervene and modify the scene. Would an 'installation-scene' created in this way function as a 'stage-picture' filled with microscopic possibilities? I am in the process of making various attempts for this question.
