This work extends the artist’s interest in technologised narratives and is accompanied by copies of a text to be taken away. Cheolsan develops Paul O’Kane’s response to a part of Seoul, South Korea, at a special moment in the year. Imaginatively inhabiting the experience of local teenagers the artist uses video, photography, writing and speech to combine a multi-media or synaesthetic experience in which male and female, sound and sight, English and Korean, as well as still and moving images share and exchange responsibility for telling a tale that can never be completed by any one protagonist, perspective or process.
