South Korean artist Heesoo Kwon mines the depths of personal cosmologies and Korean shamanism to sculpt a virtual confessional space of deep introspection.
탈피를 위한 의식-A Ritual for Metamorphosis and Leymusoom Mogyogtang are attempts to re-frame personal experiences and create spaces for reflection and care. Utilizing the virtual space as a Utopian realm and aspects of Korean shamanism, ideas of agency and selfhood are centered against a backdrop of contingent histories.
