Project

For a time I thought that I could decide myself whether to do art or not. Then I realized that this wasn’t a matter of choice: expressing myself through art is essential to me. Through my work I speak, and I want to be heard and seen.

A very private and intimate exploration of my own identity is made public in this work.

"How to cook Samgyetang", "How to cook Janchi Guksu" and "How to make Tteokbokki" are part of my art-project titled: "Identities and Recipes", which makes use of Youtube and exploits the phenomenon of the cooking-tutorial popularity. The title: "How to cook/make... " reminds that of a common cooking tutorial though, at a first view, it is immediately clear that something different is displayed. This might irritate the viewer. Within the format of a cooking tutorial I explore my own identity. In my video I also use sculptures, paintings and clothes that I have made as props.

It would be a pleasure to experience the vision of my work in a private context.
