How to Remember the Black Book in Seoul

2017

Single Channel video, Mapplethorpe, Black Book

Structured like a book consisting of 12 chapters with a series of handwritten texts, the narrator in the video recounts the memory of seeing Robert Mapplethorpe’s Black Book as a teenager in Seoul while re-enacting the images from the book. The work deals with the conflicting racial power dynamics rooted in her gender, ethnicity and cultural background.
