am what I am
and what I am not
I cannot be
let it be
“I do not construct reality – my body is reality”
Yong Sun Gullach is a Korean-Danish artist and activist operating at the boundaries of Art Writing, performance and installation art. Her main themes unfolds disruptions and des-orientation of power structures, identity, language and perceptions as she investigate the aesthetics of the visual expressions and hidden narrations, that are embedded in-between the body and the spoken word.
Yong Sun Gullach investigates the essence of the loss of an understanding of a self and the strategies to overcome, what is not within reach. The human nature’s attempt to replace the self by de-and reconstructing an identity is unfold in the complex co-creation of the body and the body’s surroundings. A loss that manifest itself in many layers always changing always present.
By letting body and space unfolds it’s complex dimensions the investigation of the co-creation between artist and spectator starts – traces creates an impact on the other person’s memories and an understanding of the dialogue is being presented. By evoking basic feelings in the other – a portal for communication opens in her art where words, sounds and visuals exchange. This deconstructed loss of the artists self opens for an exchange constructing a narration and thereby the performers body in the room.
Gullach’s performance-investigations adds a textuality of flesh and time. The artists body in space and time bends what cannot be captured but only absorbed, in a single unique space continuum for each spectator.
