Stairway that cannot be walked down

Stairway that cannot be walked down

Year 2012

There is a story about North Korea that has become a different country, the warlike story of provocative actions by the North, and the heartbreaking story of separated families. Wishing that their stories will not be easily forgotten in a cynical modern society, I produced this monumental work. On the stoned stairway hanging in the air embroidered a phrase that represents the painful reality, creating a surreal situation. Through this work, I attempted to intimate the difficulty of walking away from the tremendous grief centered in their lives to sustain their lives as before.
