사이의 풍경
A father told an anecdote to his son. The story is a kind of absurd folktale that is hard to believe as historical fact. The documentary is about the narrative based on “facts” that have been passed on orally. It relies on a storytelling technique that comprises memory and history, and reflects the state of reconstructing stories that were forbidden or forgotten by the velocity of time.
Haejun JO has been creating drawings based on oral memory, installations, and videos under themes of various events happened during the democratization process of Korea and Arabic countries. His major projects include Amazing Father (2005) and Arab Spring: The Arab World Reflected From Without (2013). He has participated in a number of exhibitions such as “The Battle of Visions” (2005), Gwangju Biennale (2008), Istanbul Biennale (2009), and “Freiheit!” (Kunstpalais Erlangen, 2013), among others.
