Our first installation EARTH in November 2016 at the Gana Art Center in Seoul, is the matrix of our following works like NUMEN and FERMENTATION.
EARTH is a 11mx 2m line of soil on the floor.
From an extremity to the other, the cycle of textile’s birth, life and death is placed in an continuity of diverse elements.
Starting from seeds in the soil, cotton’s flowers, threads, raw fiber becoming woven fabric, up to the final garment decaying and returning to the soil in the fumes of burning incense.
This “ashes to ashes” process is part of our research about the cycle of the impermanence and the principle of eternal circulation.
