To Paint the Portrait of a Bird 2019

Installation, Korea Artist Prize Exhibition 2019, MMCA, Seoul

To Paint the Portrait of a Bird invites the audience to enter the ‘inside’ of a cage where artworks are displayed, while the ‘outside’ of the cage is not accessible to the audience, it is only possible to look at this surrounding space through the mesh walls. This binary structuring of the space throws open the hierarchical positioning of humans and birds.
