STATEMENT

As an Indigenous Korean, I am continuously searching for Korean practices and knowledge that pre-existed the hierarchical lineage from dynasties to nation-states. This knowledge was literally buried in the ground during the Japanese colonization and as a result, erased from daily practice, only returning to contemporary culture as a neutralized and fetishized image devoid of any ethics or operational models for behavior.

This has led me to construct a self-reflexive, performative and ad-hoc research practice that both mines archived non-linear social protocols abstracted from indigenous social protocols, and applying them to contemporary cybernetic systems of capital.
