The Toddler

, Chang Seo Young

A female figure with point shoes is walking precariously on her toes.

A female figure with point shoes is walking precariously on her toes. Her sight is blocked by a bandage tied around her head, and a straitjacket restricts her movements. She staggers and stumbles, but continues to walk until the end of the film. As the film loops, she eventually finds herself in an eternal state of instability. No certain purpose is to be found in her action, which seems neither fully autonomous nor entirely heteronymous. Her walking, which also recalls the clumpy movements of a toddler, represents the moment in which one doesn’t know what to do, being confused by his/her own existence.
