Climbers, Yong-a Lee x Seungho Chun x Heemin Chung, Single-channel video with sound, 20’30”, 2020
<Climbers> is a 3D graphic video of which narrative starts from the gallery space and ends at the same spot where it begins. It metaphorically depicts contemporary disease, fear, and illusion which atomized individuals might have by using images of deep sea creatures which strive to get adapted to the pressure of water while approaching to darkness. The gallery space keeps changing into a shipwreck under the water, the deep sea, jogging track, then into the gallery space again. The narrator continues to daydream murmuring lengthy, picked-up stories about myth regarding the world of underwater and pseudo-medical knowledge. This video crisscrosses descending images of the underwater environment and ascending images of climbing to point out the irony that individuals orient themselves to its surroundings by regressing.
