Draft; Sans Self, 2016
The installation Draft: Sans Self was installed and viewed in a part of a three Person Exhibition Contemplation, 2016
at DOOSAN Gallery, NY, USA.
In Draft: Sans Self, the artist creates a visual form of writing, borrowed from the literary diction in Essayism, by crafting “coincidences.”
In this installation, which is a part of the <Dear무(无)질(质)> project, parallelizes a scene depicting a man preparing to go fishing from Robert Musil’s “Fishermen on the Baltic” with a scene of an artist-created character writing a novel. Avoiding the translation of multiplicity into a linear narrative thread, the artist is rather attentive to the details of the anecdotes, each of which is whimsically installed as a language of publishing such as draft , proof, and illustration. Each draft and anecdotes are on a linear ticket rack installation allows the viewer to explore the ubiquitous asthetic of a never-ending manuscript/draft.
