Jeamin Cha’s Hysterics weaves a story of a dead couple in a video that is “deep, dark, atmospheric…reminiscent of film noir aesthetics.”
8 Video Artists Tackle Collective Memory and Hidden Truths.
Collective memory and personal experience are the inspiration for a new video art exhibition curated by Seoyoung Kim at DNA Berlin. Evidence was inspired partly by Paul Valéry’s assertion that “an image is more than an image and sometimes shows more than the object of which it is an image.” The exhibition consists of videos from eight artists who were invited to rethink “the stories that have been overshadowed by social histories” by presenting their own historical and political heritages and understandings through an artistic lens. Each video explores a unique topic and together they bring a sense of unity and universality in their depictions of traumatic periods and the roles of individuals in the tide of world history.
