Tail language

 

Tail Language is satirizing the hypocritical culturalism and the analytical error of human language through movements that are motivated by symbolic system of tail language and gesture from animals in imagination. It aims to break away from the body and language through process of dismantling and recombining from structural and semiotics such as the line and planes, or the intersection of lines and shapes.

Gaksi

 

The value of coexistence is what is needed for people today. 

 

Gaksi got its plot from the Korean Bridal Mask. It is a work to express the satirical side of Somoo and the struggle of a bride (wife) in the modern times. It attempts to ventilate the gloomy portrait of the modern day people through the notion of marriage called, 'Gaksi' in a satiric way. 

 

Through Korean subjects (Gaksi, paper fan, etc.) and music, it tries to create the most modernistic work. 

 

*Gaksi means bride and Somoo is a Korean bridal mask in Korean Language.
