The Will
2 Channel Video, 5 Channel Sound, metal installation
20 min in loop

"The Will" is the artists' first outcome of the ongoing collaborative research project in the context of intermediality, performativity and writing counter-histories. The videos reenact the scenes from the existing films. theater and literary sources that portray the moments of the ruptures in the historical/political context. Employing performance as a writing tool the artists attempt to document the atmosphere of 'negative utopia', which they sensed during 'the candle light revolution' in the winter 2016 in South Korea.
