CAMPFIRE 2015′ is a work originating in from the question of relationship. This is a study on the formation of relations within a specific given situation such as a space surrounding a character around a campfire and its atmosphere. I also wanted to search for a myriad of new relationships which are created in the exhibition between individuals in the audience, space and the installation itself.

The video work ‘man’ that recorded the assistant in the candle ritual at the campfire is repeatedly played on the monitor placed on the chair. This work plays a role in leading the whole story, It also carries out a kind of systematic role of inducing and controlling participation.

‘Each candle ceremonies’, Three candles, Variable size, 2015.
Charcoal left on the campfire, and the remaining candles moved to the exhibition space. These are direct and physical proofs of the situation at the time of shooting candle rituals in a typical Korean campfire. It contains only the past events that are ‘just so’ rather than the purpose of representation. There is no direct narrative there, but it is the proof of an event that acts as a trigger to those who have experienced campfires.
