Extreme Private Practice 1 and 2 is a performance in which I placed messages inside of plastic balls and bat them into the city’s environment for others to discover. It reflects my interest in art as a social intervention. It concerns our anxiety and worry about being under the control and tight grip of our capitalist system. It is a solitary act of liberation and protest using a baseball bat and golf club and plastic balls. The plastic balls carry messages such as “The stock market is fraud,” and “Stop the war machine!,” and and various instructions for actions to relieve anxiety such as “If you feel isolated from the rest of the world, tear a newspaper into thin strips and connect them into one long string.”

*Escape Manual:
-Suddenly, if you feel a fear of loneliness, separated from the world, tear a newspaper into narrow strips and tie them together to make a "string!"
-Suddenly, if you feel troubled because of a money-lending spam message on your phone, break off a Q-tip head and make it into an "arrowhead!"
-Suddenly, if you feel alarmed because your stock is plummeting, gather up some Post-Its and make a ball!
-Suddenly, if you feel disgusted by the biased reports on TV, fold up some paper and make a "plane"!
-Suddenly, if you feel alarmed by skyrocketing real estate prices, even though you saved money to buy a house, crush a biscuit into crumbs!
-Suddenly, if you feel confused by the huge disparity of diagnoses between different doctors, make a cat's cradle with rubber bands and create some shapes!
-Suddenly, if you feel annoyed because of a damaged package delivered to you, tie the package ropes continuously and make a knot!
-Suddenly, if you feel angry because you've been overbilled, crush the tip of a pencil and make a "sculpture"!
-Suddenly, if you feel annoyed by being put on hold forever, write a secret code memo


Extreme Private Practice(극사적 실천)는 예술의 사회적 실천에 대한 고민이 반영된 수행적 작업이다. 이 작업은 자본주의 체제와 정보사회에서 어떠한 개인도 자유로울 수 없는 현실에 대한 불안감을 반영하고 있다. 퍼포머는 통제/관리시스템 사회에서 탈주하기 위한 은밀하고 고독한 심리행위를 도시공간 곳곳(건물옥상, 텅빈 저녁 골목길 등)에서 감행하였다. 작가는 우연한 상황을 과감히 받아들이고 예상치 못한 변화의 가능성을 열어두기 위해, 길 위에서 행위하였고, 이를 SNS와 웹 상에 라이브 방송하였다.

*일상탈출 매뉴얼:
-불현듯 당신이 세상과 동떨어져 홀로 있다는 공포감을 느낀다면, 신문을 가늘게 찢어 연결하여 ‘줄’을 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신의 핸드폰에 대출 스팸문자가 와서 공포감을 느낀다면, 면봉을 뿌러 뜨려 ‘화살촉’을 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신의 증권주식이 급락하여 위기감을 느낀다면, 주변의 스티커를 떼어 ‘공’을 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신이 티브이에서 전하는 일방적 보도에 거부감을 느낀다면, 종이컵을 접어 ‘비행기’를 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신이 집을 사기위해 저축을 했지만 부동산가격이 폭등하여 위기감을 느낀다면, 비스켓을 부스러뜨려 ‘가루’를 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신이 병원에서 처방 받은 내용이 병원마다 크게 달라 혼란을 느낀다면, 고무밴드 안에 손가락을 넣어 변화하는 ‘도형’을 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신에게 배송된 물품이 파손된 것을 알고 기분이 언짢음을 느낀다면, 포장용 끈을 지속적으로 묶어 ‘매듭’을 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신에게 이중부과 된 고지서가 전달되어 황당함을 느낀다면, 연필의 끝을 뭉게어 ‘조각품’을 만들어라!
-불현듯 당신이 AS센터에 전화를 걸었으나 계속 통화중의 신호만을 듣는 불편함을 느낀다면, 메모지에 ‘암호’를 그려 넣어라!
