Through re-presentation and reenactment of narratives from the media, my interdisciplinary artistic practice criticizes the South Korean government's political repression that disregards the constitution. My artwork makes commentaries on current issues such as police brutality at legal protests and the media censorship to oppress public expression. I adopt the role of the "issue-makers" in the media by reenacting the actions of politicians, police officers, and protesters, through which I develop multiple perspectives on socio-political situations.
Dear the Korean Congressmen (2015) appropriates the format of the Korean election poster and denounces the Korean politician’s patterned irrational bureaucracy. It depicts a politician who does not see or listen to the voices of the public. I embedded the symbols that represent the poster format, such as the numbers, and my name along with the word “party” in Korean. The election number is a combination of one and two, which represents the major political parties in Korea.—http://www.vop.co.kr/A00001009222.html
Activist-Artist (2015) portrays multiplied self-portraits as a group of activists. The repeated raised fist is a symbolic gesture to express uprising defiance and resistance against the political censorship that questions the constitution as a governing document.
