Part of the exhibition Noli : jeux coréens.


From the vast emptiness of the cosmos, vital energy emerges - Ki 기 (氣). Lines and curves unfold, embodying the classical elements that make up the matter of the universe: water, air, fire, and earth. From these elements, the bodies of athletes in motion spring forth: those of ssireum wrestlers (Korean wrestling), taekwondo and its ancestor taekkyeon, and archery.


내면의 여정을 통해 인간 영혼의 고뇌에 대한 답을 찾고자, 한 인물이恍惚 상태로 자신의 생각의 미로를 헤매고 있습니다. 자신보다 더 큰 것을 보고 싶은 의지와 이상에 대한 갈망에 이끌려 그 인물은 시각들을 모아 순간적으로 포착한 후 놓아주며 세상을 향한 수많은 창문을 열어냅니다.
