As before, I didn’t do anything – Jin Young Park – Rebublic of Korea

Last year, I experienced a death, a disease and a low point in a relationship, all around the same time. When these unbearable pains happened, I simply swallow them, unprepared, or at least I thought I did. But those memories translated into feelings and broke me into little fragments. Thelife as I knew it – relationships, memories, facial expressions and expressions – all fell apart. To be honest, I haven’t done anything about it until now. I have never tried to discuss or express it. I am still trapped in that time. Now, I intend to pull myself out of the past. I want to face myself still stuck in that time. Park presents archives of unexpected past occurrences that happened around the same time, in separate yet similar tracks with some overlaps. Part 1. Shape of the room Part 2. Form of archives Part 3. Records of recovery
