Re-edited Museum 2021
between order & chaos
Reading a book is like chewing up its contents, re-editing it with a personal interpretation and reflection based on one's own experience. Of course, various reading is possible depending on the perspective of the reader. I am interested in the diversity of possible readings that is manifested without inevitability.
In the work <Re-editing / Orderliness / Chaos>, I disassembled a book and edited it into smaller units. The book which was composed as a whole was cut into smaller pieces, rebind, re-edited into many new smaller books. In a corner of the miniature room, bookshelves or boxes containing these books were created where the arrangement appeared chaotic with fragments scattered like debris.The work attempts to mimic the act of reading, but with the contents dismantled and repositioned within the history of a given narrative. It is also a symbolic act of setting books free from the pre-existing contexts by rearranging the contents.
