Unbeknownst to us, models have replaced real objects and deeply ingrained themselves in our lives. They are so exquisite that one cannot distinguish them from reality without close examination. Items such as flowers, fruits, trees, and even food are difficult to distinguish by sight alone, and one can only tell the ‘difference’ through smell and touch.  
 
I photographed scenes of intermixed real and artificial objects before printing and deconstructing these images. Printing two copies of the photographs, I cut one horizontally, another vertically, and wove them together.  
 
The reconstructed image looks the same, but it is a whole new picture, expressing the values and meanings inherent in the objects. We are left to question what is authentic or artificial, an original photo or reconstructed.  

 

This exhibition is outdoors. Please check what COVID-19 restrictions are in place before you visit.

I was born in 1961 in South Korea, where I currently live and work. A self-taught photographer, I graduated in business administration.  

My photographic work has been exhibited widely throughout South Korea and has been the subject of several solo exhibitions. I have also exhibited internationally, including in Belgium, the USA, Singapore and Spain. My bodies of work, Traces of Memory (2015) and Stone Man (2016), were published by IAAN books. I exhibited at Head On Photo Festival 2019 in Sydney.
