Statement

In the moments when human rights collapse and certain pre-existing problems are repeated, I realise that I am incredibly concerned by the exposed issues, and it is what motivates me to take further action. This piece is about a farmer named Namki Baek, who died from a water cannon shot by a police officer in Gwanghamun in November 2015. After this, I became interested in the protests that took place on the streets due to Baek’s daughter, who took part in a demonstration in Rotterdam Central Station, completely alone. Street reveals the fractures within incomplete political systems and social structures of power. I captured choreographed movements from dancers who had trained for years as they created a new language in one chaotic instance. It is a study of how to provide critical discussion through subjective and individual gestures as a group. Their bodies broke away from longstanding habits and rituals, evoking a unique type of dialogue.
