Painting for Out of Body Travel (2000-2002)

 

Painting for Out of Body Travel can be hung in different versions of length according to the size of the space available by turning a handle and unrolling the canvas. I found a common kitsch painting depicting scenery in a local market and cut it vertically down the center. The additional canvas connects these two halves with horizontal strips of color, as if it was stretched. In the instructions, I wrote “Relax and stare at the center of the painting until you feel dizzy. … Someday it will appear to conjoin into one image and you will finally experience ‘Out of Body Travel,’ landing into the scene of the painting. When you practice ‘Out of Body Travel,’ it is possible to fall into the waterfall or lake in the painting. Therefore I suggest you to wear a helmet, life jacket and elbow protectors.”

 

순간 이동 그림 (2000-2002)

 

손잡이를 돌리면 캔버스가 펼쳐지는 이 작품은 전시 공간 크기에 맞게 작품 너비를 조절해 설치 할 수 있다.  나는 주변에서 흔히 볼 수 있는 싸구려 풍경화를 동네 시장에서 발견한 후, 이를 구입해 반으로 잘랐다. 그리고 그 반쪽 그림들 사이를 색색의 평행선이 그려진 캔버스로 연결하여 마치 풍경화 원본이 길게 늘려진 것처럼 보이게 만든 후, 설명서를 제작해 순간 이동시의 유의점과 순간 이동 방법을 기록해 놓았다.  "긴장을 풀고 어지럽다고 느낄 때까지 그림의 중심을 응시한다... 그러면 반쪽의 이미지들이 하나의 이미지로 결합되어 보이게 되고, 그림 속 풍경으로의 '이체 유탈 여행'을 경험할 수 있을 것이다. '이체 유탈 여행'시 그림 속의 폭포나 호수에 빠질 수도 있으므로 헬멧과 구명 조끼, 무릎 보호대의 착용을 권장한다. –순간 이동 설명서 중-"
