Mirror Organs: A Play of Metonymy


<거울내장: 환유 쇼>/ "Mirror Organs: A Play of Metonymy", Live Video Performance Installation, 2017


32 Robots perform in unison in between 2 interactive screens creating a performance of the collective. These ‘invisible soldiers’ guard and honor nothing other than the screens in front of and behind them. Error is the mark of their individuality. Their motion becomes a balletic yet benign choreographic signifier of collective control. In turn there are two video cameras installed between the guns and the screens. These cameras film the scene in front of it, each sending their footage in real time to the screen opposite it. The politics and dynamics of being looked at. How, why, where and who become big questions in the arena of visual engagement.
