– Slumber

Performance, 2008

This performance work is to resurrect the momentum of drifting into the slumber. During sleep, our psych travels deeper into the unconsciousness. Even tortured bodies are unexceptionally embraced by the healing of slumber.

Liquid water with pigment was contained in the condoms. I was holding needle in my mouth and breaking the inflated condoms one by one. The river like fabric was spread on the ground. The ruptured liquid dyed the fabric in various colors and shapes. The condom signifies oppressed sexual energy, which was turned into violence as torture.

In our culture, it was told that we will cross a river to transition into afterlife plane.

まどろみの世界に溶込むとき、私達の精神は無意識の深みに浸透する。拷問を受けてひどく痛む身体でさえ、眠りの力は境なく抱えこみ、絶大な治癒の世界へといざなう。

잠을 자는 동안 정신은 무의식 속 깊이 내려간다. 잠시 잠드는 순간에  고문을 당한 견디기 어려운 아픔을 갖은 몸이나마 그 안에서 탈출 해 생과 죽음의 틈 속에서 달콤한 아물림을 이룬다.
