Title: I Met You Here
Medium: Installation of found objects and a photographic work
Artist In Residence, Litmus Community Space
Ansan City South Korea
1st August – 30th September 2010
During the residency, I collected discarded objects and furnitures around the town which mostly belonged to migrant workers who came to work in Wongok-dong, Ansan for a short period of time. To reinterpret the concept of multi-culture which is a phenomenon of Wongok-dong, I created a domestic installation out of these abandoned objects and personal belongings of migrant workers. A sense of the past and the present and a diversity of different cultures and identities were seen through a range of discarded and abandoned objects and housewares.
