<지워진 얼굴들>은 분단 이후 여성들의 서사와 그 기록에 관한 것이다. 전쟁과 그 이후의 삶에 대한 공식적인 역사는 남성 주체의 저항과 승리의 과정으로 기록된다. 여기에서 여성들은 비가시성의 영역에 머무르거나, 가치판단이 부여된 상징으로 왜곡, 축소되며 대중에게 일관된 감정을 일으키기 위해 반복 재현된다.
본 전시는 기존의 역사쓰기에서 남성 주체의 자리를 여성 주체로 대체하는 것을 거부하는 동시에 그 불가능성을 인지하며, 역사를 구성하지만 동시에 개별자인 여성과 마주하고, 그들과 대화하고, 그들을 상상한다. 과거와 현재, 그리고 과거를 살아왔으며 현재에 존재하는 여성들의 부유하는 기억들을 작품 속 각각의 언어로 들으면서 관람객은 현재 자신의 삶에 대해서 재인식하고 역사 속에서 새로이 자신의 자리를 모색할 수 있을 것이다.

Effaced Faces is about the history and the documentation of women after Korea War. While official history of the war is being written as a story of resistance and the victory of male subjects, women either remained in the realm of invisibility or repeatedly represented as an image reduced to mere victims or sexual objects. The exhibition, instead of replacing male subjects with females, tries to face, communicate, and imagine women as individual agencies. While listening women’s memory through their words, visitors are invited to recognize their current conditions, and relocate their place in the history.

Wasteland: Open Sessions 16

Thursday, November 14
6–8pm

The Drawing Center
35 Wooster Street

Wasteland marks the fifth iteration of Open Sessions, a six-part exhibition program presented between October 2018 and January 2020 at The Drawing Center. Organized by curators Rosario Güiraldes and Lisa Sigal, Open Sessions fosters a dynamic, ever-evolving dialogue with new drawing practices and practitioners, exhibiting and contextualizing the work of early career artists who explore the nature of drawing in its many manifestations through conversation, public programs, and thematic group exhibitions.
Featuring works by Esteban Cabeza de Baca, Crystal Z Campbell, Theodore Darst, Jonathan Ehrenberg, Young Joo Lee, Omid Shekari, and Tariku Shiferaw, Wasteland explores the psychological and physiological impact of our increasingly digitized world through unconventional drawing practices.

MY NAME IS PA-YUN: AN ANIMATED DOCUMENTARY

THURSDAY, MAY 24 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission

My name is Pa-Yun  is an animated documentary about a man who escaped North Korea before the Korean War. His childhood to adolescence was affected by Japanese colonialism, the Russian invasion, the rise of the dictatorship in North Korea and then the Korean War. He left his troublesome memories in the Korean peninsula and he has been living in the United States for the past 60 years. The interview takes him and myself to his childhood home in Pyongyang. We travel back in time to witness the political shift in the Korean peninsula and the changes in the lives of people.” — Young Joo Lee

Also screening is Disgraceful Blue (10 min 24, digital animation)

“Making of Disgraceful Blue started from my interpretation of the dreams I had and editing them to create an allegorical story about an Asian woman giving birth to a daughter with blue eyes. The story depicts the journey of a heroine, being “the other” in a conforming society. She becomes part of the majority by hiding her otherness only to realise that in the end her inner “blueness” doesn’t die, because it will only be born again as another form, in another generation.”

CHOREOGRAPHY OF THE INANIMATE: A 3D ANIMATION WORKSHOP

http://www.echoparkfilmcenter.org/events/choreography-of-the-inanimate-a-3d-animation-workshop-with-young-joo-lee/

2 SESSIONS: May 22 and May 23, 7 – 9 PM

Are you familiar with 3-D animation? This workshop is to combine the 3-D scanning technology with animation to make a simple but unique animation. In the first session, we will watch some examples of 3-D scanned animated objects. Then we will learn how to 3-D scan an object or a sculpture using Kinect hardware and Skanect software. In the second session, we will animate the 3-D object using Blender to create a short animation. Prior knowledge of Blender or other 3-D modeling software is helpful but not necessary.
