Growth first begins to appear as a change that brings more

various and delicate colors and scents of life. The events that are

encountered for the first time in life can be baffling at first, but

fortunately these new experiences that we think we failed to

make the best out of teach us new senses of a different world. The

paradox that when we thought we have stepped back,

we have actually taken two steps forward, always comes to

realization belated, and the fact that we realize this progress

belated alone is also a paradox. At the phase of my life

when I was 26 turning 27, I experienced a great leap that

almost felt imposing. It was not an easy year. After the year

went by, at the end of enduring the great and unexpected

changes in life, I slowly began to realize that I found more

colors and scents of life that I can sense and appreciate.

 

On one of the deep autumn days, I became at awe of the color

of the sky and went for a stroll in the Geun-lin Park near my

studio. The outdoor gym of Geun-lin Park was high with spirit.

People in different outfits and of various looks were excersising

very hard. The People freely portrayed their emotions as they

excersised, which got me pondering about different paths in

life. And the various auras I’ve found in each person gave me

a colorful festive experience along with the fresh air, blue sky

and the beautiful colors of autumn leaves. This splendid image

marked the beginning of Faux-Naif (Feign) Olympics series.

 

Exercise brings out the colors of life that we have overlooked

or ignored and displays them in front of our eyes. The exercises

that are similar to familiar games we often play can let us pour

out small pieces of the wonderful emotions we hold inside such

as passion, tenacity, joy, fury and despair. This can be compared

to prism, which displays diffusion of various colors that exists

in white light. The Olympic symbol that represent the world

also reflect various colors of life. Olympics represent variety of

life. Faux-Naif (Feign) Olympics surpasses the festival of sport and

present a festivity of various colors and scents revealed by sports.

 

The awareness of the tension between self and the surrounding

world and the search for the true self that have been carried out

can still be found in Faux-Naif (Feign) Olympics. A tug of war game

between the world and myself is still ongoing. Amid the tension

that occasionally grows loose or tense, I tried to hold my ground

and confront the world with all my might. I could get hurt from

time to time, but I pulled myself back up everytime and continued

the journey of life. And I believe that granted another step forward.

Raising the red card up high towards the suppressing forces in

life is a manifestation of independence, and the girl shouting out

‘victory is mine!’ is a portrait of stronger self. My work can be

described as a diaky that record many emotions that filled myself

throughout the past year. The emotions approached as complex

layers of fear and anxiety toward life and unexpected joy and

happiness in between, which I captured onto a dense and colorful

surface, and now I confess with the metaphor of Faux-Naif (Feign).

 

Creating artwork and writing notes help me reflect on myself

and clarify what has been obscure. My past year has been fierce,

and in the process, I found my thoughts and beliefs growing

stronger. Though I am still trying to stay balanced, I feel

progress. I hereby present you the result of my intense struggle

for growth from the past year, Faux-Naif (Feign) Olympics.
