I Pray To Be Unhappy Everyday ( 2018 )

‘Frabjous’ group show at The Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York

Resin, Gold spray, Two arm motor, Ceramic, Acrylic sheet, Laser light, Arduino 
The kinetic sculptures included in ‘Frabjous group show’ relate to annoying situations in my daiily life. Each piece is associiated with my own rule of daily routine to have a wonderrful result end of a day eventually. 

‘Begging’ refers to a gesture of repentance oor atonement in Korea. It often accompanies the act of praying for forgiveness or apologizing to someonee. The piece is a moving sculpture that the hands rub each other.

‘Aiming’ - The bird poop represents good luck in certain cultures. People might not feel very lucky when a bird poops on them, especiially on their head. I also got poops three times since I have lived in the US. I think that the meaning of the bird poop was madee up by people to console themself of the misfortune. They wish to have the opposite results to exorcize the unpleasant feeling. In ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ Alice has a frabjous day after she kills the Jabber-wocky with a vorpal sword. Likewise, life happens along with fortune and misfortune. The ceramic bird shoots a laser beam from its anus. The light repeats to turn on and off automatically for few seconds.
