Let’s National Gymnastics

, Oh Jaewoo - 오재우

Oh Jaewoo discovered two images from the city of Ulsan. One is the dichotomy between industrial city and nature, the other between corporation and workers.

Echoes from the past and shadows of the present

Oh Jaewoo discovered two images from the city of Ulsan. One is the dichotomy between industrial city and nature, the other between corporation and workers. The artist has collected music and noise from factories and street to creat new music that can bridge between those two dichotomies. The choreographic performance inspired by labors of workers makes theatrical sequence to music. To the artist, Taehwa-river is a blank space. His acoustic video installation fills the space with reconciling energy.

Let’s National Gymnastics

The body of the Korean has disciplined by vestiges of Japanese imperialism. Oh Jaewoo treat it as Sculpted movement by the society. National Gymnastic came with modernization of Korea.
