USO 2004 (Unidentified Seoul Object 2004)

 

Gallery text: “A girl wearing a dual watch, eating a snikers, walked around the city of Seoul and disappeared in a UFO which appeared on top of the girl. Then from the surface of the UFO, the beautiful buildings of Seoul began to grow out like fungus. It was as if the halo of a martyr was coming into the scene. As soon as she vanished into the UFO, the UFO turned into USO (Unidentified Seoul Object).”

 

USO 2004 (미확인 서울 물체 2004)

 

전시장 작품 설명에서 발췌: 시계판이 두개인 손목시계를 차고 초코바를 먹으며 서울 시내를 돌아다니던 소녀가 머리 위에 나타난 UFO 속으로 사라진다. 그 후, UFO 표면에 비치던 아름다운 서울의 빌딩들이 곰팡이처럼 증식하기 시작하며 마치 순교자에게 비치는 후광 같은 모습을 연출한다. 소녀가 UFO 속으로 사라지자마자, UFO는 USO (미확인 서울 물체)로 변화한다.
