transitory workplace 53
‘transitory workplace 53′ is both a physical space and 53-day-long project for an exhibition, ‘life a user’s manual’ in culture station seoul 284 during sept. 13 and nov. 4, 2012.
moving somewhere is entrusting the body to a time of uncertainty. it is same no matter if the place one moves is familiar or how one becomes habituated to unplanned life. while preparing the exhibition, coincidently, i migrated back to korea ending many years of life in the netherlands. the anxiety i felt before entering the track of a new physical environment quite naturally summons the space of memories. can i concretize abstract uncertainty with physical space and daily action by setting up a provisional workplace between studio in amsterdam and seoul?
‘transitory workplace 53′ restores the past by using objects i used at the studio in amsterdam, reconfiguring necessary for my individual needs. this work presents working activities in a temporary situation at a provisional workplace and encounters of others with diverse purpose.
