Parental Plates (2003)

 

Parental Plates is a video and ceramic installation which was created in 2003 based on interviews with 12 residents in the Savona region of Italy, which was famous for its high quality ceramics in the past. In the video, they held up plates that they had inherited from their parents and ancestors, and they told me various stories relating to the plates. The actual plates were copied at the local ceramic studio. And Korean food served on the copied dishes at the opening.

 

부모님의 접시 (2003)

 

이 작품은 과거에 최고 품질의 도자기 생산으로 유명했던 이탈리아의 사보나에서, 12명의 사보나 주민과 2003년에 진행한 인터뷰를 바탕으로 제작한 영상과 설치 작품이다. 인터뷰에서 주민들은 부모님들로 부터 물려받은 도자 접시들을 보여 주고, 그것에 얽힌 이야기들을 들려준다. 나중에 지역의 도자 공방에서 똑같이 재현된  이 접시들은 전시 오프닝에 제공되었던 한국 음식을 담는데에 쓰여졌다.
