Video, Photos / 50x35x70(cm) / 2014
This is one of my friends YUAN, Zhi-Jie’s private family memory. YUAN and his family had never take photos together, so I decided to put some pictures together to help him make a fictitious family photo. The portrait I drew in the video is based on YUAN’s grandfather’s facial expression before he committed suicide, and I used “Google Translate” to translate YUAN’s narration to Korean pronunciation and play it as the sound. Some of the photos were found at his grandmother’s place, and some are from his half-sister—he asked his half-sister for reproduced photos from his father’s house, and sent the datum to him. I borrowed these photos from YUAN, Zhi-Jie, and let them (their images) go on a journey.
