Materials

Materials, 2016. Two-channel video, 1 hour 56 minutes. Commissioned for Rituals, a special exhibition curated by Chun Sang-A as part of Art Paris Art Fair, Grand Palais, Paris, 31 March–3 April 2016.

Created for an art fair in Paris, the video very slowly — for almost two hours — lists 115 art materials simultaneously in Korean and French, from “acide“ to “xylogravure.” The two lists have the same content, but as each follows its own alphabetical order (Latin or Korean), the two screens do not correspond to one another at any given moment.
