YOO EUI JEONG

The Latin “factum,” which is the origin of the English word “fact,” contains within it the meaning of “made.”For me this means that the truth as we know it is based upon things that are “made”—things that we construct. My works deal with the past of a future which is made to appear real. “The past of the future”in this context embraces the present, and what I deal with is the present. “The present” only exists because the past has existed. By the same token, the future is an extension of the present. As a contemporary artist, I take note of present phenomena. The current state in which our present culture exists is perhaps a corollary of the co-existence of the traditional and the modern, the analogue and the digital, the Eastern and the Western, the past and the future, and folk beliefs and materialism. A sense of the continuity of time almost ceased to exist for Koreans at the time of Japanese colonial rule and the Korean War, leaving us with only disconnected moments in time and a past, present, and future launched into further confusion in the aftermath of rapid modernization and industrialization. As my works reflect and embody this history, they inevitably borrow features from a past that offers only a very obscure continuity.

In a way, then, I am trying to make visible what is invisible.
