“There are enormous parts that we cannot prove or explain
scientifically, logically or rationally in this world. Is it possible to find
a solution if we try to prove or explain them with philosophical and
theoretical concepts? I believe it should be a true artist who goes on
the long journey that is accompanied by lots of difficulties to find,
rather than ignore or just accept, the impossibility. As one of the true
artists who is willing to go on that journey, I trust my attitude and
intuitiveness toward art could approach viewers in variable and
mutable perspectives by communicating with them more than just a
personal belief. I intend to search for answers to this question by
exploring the concepts of oppressed human desire, consciousness,
unconsciousness, eroticism and the uncanny."
