This work displays traditional Korean funeral attire, worn by the deceased before the body goes into a grave. There is a myth that lives are extended if children prepare parents’ funeral clothes while the parents are alive. Inspired by this idea, Minhee constructed this piece with monofilament which looks like old women's hair, as a prayer for longevity of the 28 Korean survivors alive at the time of construction. It is one of an ongoing series to commemorate all the living victims.
