East Wind or The Two Hearts is both a performance and video installation focusing on several locations in South Korea. Imposed upon the video recordings of the scenery were my subjective statements written in calligraphy which was intended as a playful act of symbolic intervention and commentary upon locations of troubled history and presence.


마치 매섭고 추웠던 겨울을 보내고 따스한 봄을 맞이하듯, 분단 이후 한국사회의 특수한 환경이 만들어내는 아이러니한 상황 속의 일상 풍경에서 현재의 제한적인 정치적, 물리적 한계를 벗어나고자하는 개인의 소망이 반영된 심리적 탈주작업이다. 전시장의 각각의 모니터에서 보여지는 퍼포먼스 영상은 한국의 이질적 상황과 장소들(공원앞 군부대가 보이는 풍경, 전쟁기념관 원호형 조각군상 앞, 전쟁기념관 형제의 상 주변, 새만금 공사장소, 세운상가 주변, 뉴타운 공사현장, 4대강 공사현장, 알박기 장소 등)에서 개인의 주관적인 심리적 행위를 겹쳐, 이미 놓여진 맥락을 터치하고 이를 유희적으로 벗어나고자하는 의미가 내포되어있다.
