Running time. 10min.
The coexistence of two beings that are forced to be Stranger from social myth. Sojae-dong(an underdeveloped area), an alienated space in a modern city. And 'I', a heterogeneous entity that isolated itself by not complying with society, feel homogeneous here in Sojea-dong. The comfort that I feel in this alienated alley that meets the ground may be the memory of childhood close to unconsciousness or a nostalgia for a place where we cannot go back. This place that time goes by calm became a ‘Hideout’ for a stranger. During the time I am here, I am being silent, calm and action without intention.
The society in which man is consumed as a particle in a huge system. Was the adaptation to the society where it was taken for granted to encroaches on my inner side? It may also connect to a life that accepts the given environment as it is. It was not changing the situation around me but adapting me to the given environment. I try to think of it here in ‘Hideout’ to resist social myth and to be on the path of self-creation. This artwork is an expression of my will and thoughts while making my own place and spending time here.
