Re-move to Remove
March 5, 2019 - 15:15-17:30
Talk by Chan Sook Choi (artist), received her Diplom’s degree in Visual Communications and Media Art and her Ma at University der Künste in Berlin.
Re-move is an autobiographical research (2010-present) project that deals with ‘Migrant Women after WWII in Asia’ and people that cross borders, who take passive forms, hidden behind the axis of history. Like Oscar Wilde’s statement “Most people are other people”, the project Re-move does not keep a welcoming stance on a matchless identity, but deconstructs and hybridizes the concept of the ‘pure’ culture. These women are categorized into various names, such as comfort women for Japanese army. I want to keep their distance from aform that appeals to the power of the dominant identity, while also rejecting the collective identity as ‘victims’, While removing the illusory unity of identity, or fate, Re-move also demonstrates the world’s conflicts and brutality perpetuated by the illusion of identity or fate, not through epistemological means but through artistic research.
