Kelvin Kyung Kun PARK

Kelvin Kyung Kun PARK has examined characteristic aspects of Korean modern history starting from the Japanese occupation through modernization and industrialization, up to the present in his videos. In his new work titled Army: 600,000 Portraits, he explores the relationship between individual and collective through military service, a rite of passage that most Korean men share. He captures the elements of performance, emphasis on the body and sexual tension specific to the military in an aloof yet observant gaze.
