Demolition Site Apartment
Project info

Jung Ji-hyun goes into city reconstruction sites or new town construction sites which lie beyond the thin metal barrier so people who are living there cannot see through. In there, he finds and directly intervenes to the scenes where the city changes and records it into photographs. In his work Demolition Site Apartment, he painted the entire interior of a floor in red and recorded the red walls coming into view due to demolition work and the change of its surroundings. While common residential space like an apartment usually offers severalty to each household, it becomes common and one property with the concurrence of reconstruction association having its reconstruction ahead. A sight where the red walls which once separated individual houses merge to form a red band is a visual metaphor of how those residents that once lived independently become one for the purpose of economic profit realization.
