"In There, everything you see get blurred and smudged. Out there, nobody knows you're in there. Body Container, it is definitely a something in-between." - Euan Park, guest performer

A video featuring the body containers performance in Seoul will be exhibited with a sculpture installation at K11 art mall. I will share my performance experiences at the exhibition entitled Body Containers come to life . I have used approximately 1,500 pages and 300 hours to create the Body Containers - Korea with a set of two wearable sculptures knitted together from shredded pages of history and art books. My performance aims at expressing the concept of how the human form embodies ideas about our society: exploring a new city and interacting with its local people/new insights can bring enjoyment to life nowadays.
