The primary motifs in this series derive from my questions about who I am at the moment. The main subject in my work is to reflect myself as a member of the society and as an individual who influences and is influenced by the surroundings in it. Therefore, through my work, I strive to complete myself by reflecting myself and to objectify my current status and situations by creating sceneries of them.
In my work, I reconstruct my feelings and situations in relation to the society. The background sets and symbolic props and objects in them are to reenact the scenes in a metaphorical way. The set is 360x600x240(H)cm in dimension and I recreate it as a narrative space by painting it and filling it with hand-made objects myself. By building the space with my personal, psychological experiences in everyday life, I try to visualize my inner world of which the meanings cannot be value-judged. My work, in essence, records my concerns and process of growing up. It narrates and dramatizes my life stories.
Reality is too unrelenting to let all the dreams come true. Nothing is guaranteed and it is hard to win what you want. Being powerless in the social structure, I feel like I am experiencing constant growing pain or belated adolescence. An individual may be an insignificant member in the whole society but he continues to survive in its oppressive and cutthroat situations. I am confused by incomprehensible aspects of the society. I feel sympathetic about or discontented with people in the society. However, I am also part of them. The society obliges me to carry numerous roles and responsibilities but I feel so burdened. However, if life is a process of resolving these problems, I will do my best in my position like other people do. In this series, I reflect myself who performs on the present progressive stage and look into myself who is growing up in reaction to the society.
