Chasing the Sun's Orbit

Chasing the Sun’s Orbit consists of an installation and coinciding traditional Korean dance and vocal performance, alongside body-builders and contemporary music.

Chasing the Sun’s Orbit hopes to deliver the uncanny beauty of preserved tradition, but also to portray the transcendence of artists who find a way to build on traditional forms with the pursuit of an individualistic artistic journey. The work honors those who connect the missing links between traditional and personal artistic experience by following their artistic urge and liberating themselves from fixed tradition. It is also a homage to the artists who find guidance from the light inside themselves and operate in their own orbit.
