-Inner struggle

As seen in the plato’s allegory of the cave, all of us are constantly caught between fictions and realities, battling on the thin line between pleasure and pain.
“Wozu” is a series that show the states of inner collision among scared egos –individuals that want to look away from the truth and who, despite the clamor of voices around them, remain largely silent.

‘Wozu’ which is interpreted as “What for” by german language means continuous ontological contemplation for human being who is under agony, weak and imperfect.

Human beings are started from confusion. and they are destined not to stop ontological question until they reach death.
Maybe, those continuous questions might be meaning of our existence in daily life.
Therefore, we are still imperfect and living together floating in a world of chaos.

This series originated in the bizarre and mystic image of myself reflected in the water.
These sentences written right after sudden awaken from sleep, opened the starting point of my work.

I reflected myself in water
And there was a stranger.
I wish he disappeared tomorrow.
