Landscape of Chois 2010
This project is about historical investigations and the revelation of ignored time, space and events in 100 years of Choi family which was the minor history of Korea. and also this "Rainbow Bomb, Vomiting Yellow and M16" project is about questioning of relationship between individual and universal history and how our major history forgot and ignored each individual's land, memory and time. this is about fable of War, Memory, Violence and Politics in our social structure with artistic practice. Since 2010 I have been investigating of my family's history which is about my grandfather, my father and me. and I started connect with universal history which is the history of Korea (1910~2010) and my family's time line which is the ignored and painful history. and I found that their time and space were ruined and lost by our major history for 100 years of war period. I'm trying to reveal , present and remedy their lost identical existence by creating historical paintings, animations and installations which are based on their authentic landscapes , moments and stories. and their stories are being transiting to fable in my imagination.

My recent project, "Rainbow Bomb, Vomiting Yellow and M16," investigates how my ancestors over the last century of war physically resisted the universal history. I am an individual who wants to dedicate and document their ignored struggle in time and space through my art practice, much like an historian but more like an artist who feels the way of ancestral pain. I strive to transmit their authentic experiences in the form of a visual language that is related to the language of Folk Art. The methodological thinking of visual execution is directly engaged with the conceptual projection of my ancestors’ landscapes in order to recreate their experience. In my paintings and animations, I explored how to deliver and portray their personal encounters and conflicts during major events through my choice of colors, voices and actions.
