Installation detail: 2017 Jeju Biennale


Liquid States

HD video installation. Color. 11:39 min. loop

Liquid States is composed of an 11:39 minutes single durational take of an active volcanic mountain located on the border of North Korea and China. The mountain is called Baekdusan in Korean and Changbaishan in Chinese.

In the video, the rapidly changing weather conditions at the peak can be observed and shows how the mountain is ever transforming. While being a source of territorial disputes, the mountain itself refuses to be contained within singular nation state imaginaries and cultural representations.
