Twin Dance (2012)

 

Twin Dance is a performance and also a video work filmed in a white studio. Two dancers perform with the same gestures of Korean traditional dance as if reflecting each other in a mirror. I presented the dancers to look like dolls in a Korean souvenir shop to emphasize the uncanny beauty of preserved tradition.

 

쌍둥이 춤 (2012)

 

쌍둥이 은 퍼포먼스 작품으로, 백색의 스튜디오에서 촬영한 영상 작품으로도 제작되었다. 이 작품은 두 명의 무용수가 등장해 한국 전통 무용의 동작들을 마치 거울에 반사된 이미지처럼 대칭으로 선보이면서 진행된다. 전통속에 존재하는 묘한 아름다움을 강조하기 위해, 무용수는 한국의 전통 기념품 가게에서 판매하고 있는 인형처럼 보이도록 분장을 한 채로 공연에 임한다.
