"Woudns" is a video installation that was exhibited in Kang's second solo exhibition in Gwangju, Korea. The audiences face many frames hung on the walls. It looks like a room of portraits however they contain not portraits but traces of a human face.
This video installation seems like as if someone is pushing the frames from behind, but those are actually illusions that come from the projectors.
The small frames are hung on the walls. They contain traces of human faces. The person whispers and painfully performs behind the white fabric and the fabric keeps us from seeing who the real person is. This anonymity makes it easier for them to tell their own stories and secrets. In this video installation, I try to deliver the irony of wounds deep inside of us. Everyone wants to share his/her stories and to be comforted by and taken care of. At the same time, it is difficult because the stories are sometimes too private and sometimes too severe.
