My work explores the appropriation of Korean politics, incidents and history.
I translate from scenes of news, videos and photographs as the selection of part into simplified drawings. I re-image and reduce complex imagery to its most essential, two dimensional elements. In my country, South Korea, I observed that a lot was happening around the country: complex events often causing shock and shame, which are all related to politics and history. A lot of them probably didn’t really know what was going on. My significant key point for my drawing and objects is: what are the memories of history echoing through the images - images that make audiences automatically assume that it is an important moment in Korean history?
