POLAR HEIR
by HAN SUNGPIL
Han Sungpil’s polar photography is a stroke of Memento Mori and polar uncanny. The photographic representation of human traces buried in snow and ice saturates its appreciator with a similar emotion. In the mind of the Polar Regions, there exists a photographic memory of triple exposure, the superposition of its white, red and black histories. The land and waters of purely the most extreme natural sublimity, according to an ordinary imagination, have actually been running on a two-track time: a track of Mother Nature, and that of her most audacious children.
