I noticed a salt barn and approached it taking pictures. But as the real object came into view clearly, that was not the same as I expected. What I believed a salt barn was a bird observation deck. I print photos and build up them through piling up a copy by copy orderly. From the camera table, a camera keep an eye forward the photos out of focus…

Artist Note

I happened to take a picture after encountering a storage in Suncheon Bay. I thought it a salt barn and approached it, but it was a very different one from my expectation. Perhaps, does not memory have such a quality? Men wants to see what his shades of memory create. I bethought myself a sort of trajectorization in order to describe a process of consciousness…

Busan American Culture Center building was used as Busan branch of Dongyang-Cheocksik Co., Ltd. during Japanese occupation period, and currently remains as Busan Modern History Museum. Present everyday life lingering like hypnosis and distorted historical moments together shape a space that bears weathered time intactly.

Artist Note

This film excavates the period of ordeal on the site of ‘Busan Modern History Museum’. The site had once been ‘Busan branch of Dongyang-Cheocksik Co., LTD’ during Japanese colonial period, and, soon after independence, was used as ‘Busan American Cultural Center’. Divided by the window frame, the shapes the film projects endeavors to stay in the building and hypnotize us. Split landscape and silent texts examine the weathered memories of the past, and the images we are limited to the exterior of the building. Window, which stands between the camera and the landscape, is almost invisible. This sense of invisibility is thus an evidence of the time endured. After all, the combination of ‘Busan American Cultural Center Arson Incident of 1982′ media coverage and its remains continuously generates afterimage.

What do we see in the cinema? The cinema itself is neither a complete real nor a complete unreal. Let`s share this question while we defamiliarize these three scenes, the promational image of Seoul M.I.C.E. Industry, Mrs. Jae-sook JEON a bereaved family of the Yongsan accident and the highway from Seoul to the outer area.

Artist Note

We are pursuing ‘something’. We take all possible means to get decency, we are absorbed in finding and applying the principle of universe with the ambition to take a God-like status. Then what is that ‘something’ we should head for?

For what do we wish more material comforts? For what do we hope for the advanced civilization? Or we may already know we don’t want these.

It’s because we despair through the experiences make the actual existences trivial while we pursue that ‘something’. The cinema reflects the real world. Then what do we need to see in the cinema?

Their Sheraton 그들의 쉐라톤

Artist : KIM Se-jin 김세진

Year/Country : 2006

Running Time : 4’

Fomat : HD MOV/Color

City is the space for wanderers. We have made roads and built the houses in the urban city. The shapes of the city in everywhere have similar forms and systems under the capitalism. The travelers next by the windows in the hotel are the illusion that reflects us as inevitable consequences of lonesome shadow in the modern lives.

Artist Note

This video has made with a composite of multiple video footages of hotel rooms seen from outside secretly, in effect giving the illusion that these were all recorded at the same time. A camera chose the room randomly to capture a certain moment of people who stood by the window of the Sheraton Hotel room just before the sunset. Through composition of this video, we are given a voyeuristic glance into the particular moments of anonymous individuals in their hotel rooms where promise a privacy for sure. But then, nothing happened in their frames, and we are left with watching these individuals, isolated and severed from each other.

Unorderable Connections 접촉불량 

Artist : KIM Hae-min 김해민

Year/Country : 2006

Running Time : 6’

Fomat: SD MOV/Color

Television is the media has been playing the actual role of bridging the gap around the globe. It remains to be the strongest messenger of image information and surrounds the world with both positive influences and harmful effects. The film stems from the role of media of such context, a single channel video about a broken TV.

The act of choosing from a wide variety of channels in itself means the continuing status of severed images. Thus the focus is on the external interruption that causes the severance of images, and ironically enough it is the interruption that takes the role of connecting the image flows.

Such seemingly random connection of images interacts with external conditions to modify the native definition of the image itself and vest it into the flow of images.

The question is also about the duality of TV media, or the truth and lies of the images, about the identity of images expressed in the time and space of the world we live in right now.

The Second Physical Condition for Being an Artist: Enjoy Every Situation! 작가가 되기 위한 신체적 조건둘째모든상황을 즐겨라 

Artist : CHANG Jia 장지아

Year/Country : 2000

Running Time : 4’20"

Fomat: SD MOV/Color

A continuing series on the different ways of body interfering with the system. The film talks of the conflicting effects rising from the unexpected reaction on the assumption of a sadistic setting.

The project stands on the ambiguous borderline between reality and performance. The expressions ever so real on the artist Jang Jia’s face make it difficult to determine if it is an act or an actual reaction. Through them Jang bluntly reveals the line that blurs her identity, whether she is an artist or a victim of physical violence.

Assuming when pain is accepted as pain, one is already won over by the system, the stimulation is received in a calm manner.

That is the artist’s critical attitude towards the unbalanced relationship between the art world and Jang Jia as an artist, and in a bigger sense the acquirement and demand for individuality against the social authority.

Those ferocious hands scrubbing in all directions using coarse sand paper, how can we bring them to a stop? How can the beauty of these wounds and creases be stored? Remember the mesmerizing scarlet sunset and the raw odor of concrete? How much longer will it take for this place to recover?
