Restoration of Harmony

Fabric, thread, paper, glue, 2017, 34"w x 90"h x 10"d

Erik Erikson, the German-American developmental psychologist, regarded culture and history as “giving life to the mind, as the medium within which shapeless biological potentials can be transformed into a distinctly human life.” Restoration of Harmony is a work that combines the traditional Korean Bongsan mask dance with a variety of ideas about my mother’s memory. The way to form the image by attaching the cloth was a technique that my mother used to repair her underwear—placing another cloth above or beneath to save money. I love Korean culture.
