Necessity refers to some kind of deficiency in the original subject, and it is the cause of the movement to overcome this deficiency. The general meaning of 'need' comes from this 'lack'. Kant's need as a predicate has two meanings.

The first is the lower need based on physical and emotional deficiency = 'emotional desire'. This desire, though inevitable, is a desire for inclination "associated with the tendency. But secondly, it is thought that the necessity of reason is the higher necessity of reason because of the essence and nature of reason. The need of reason is further divided into the need of the theoretical reason and the necessity of the practical reason.





MEANING OF THE STAIR (NECESSITY), 2019

Video work with rear projection

You can find the stairs everywhere around you. The implications of the stairs that face countless times a day, not to mention the beginning and end of the day, are indeed infinite. It is a collective of individual, collective, spiritual, and physical civilisation around human beings ranging from religious symbolism, political monumentality, social publicness, economic desire, psychological delicacy, physiological physicality. The meaning of the staircase is essentially ascending. The stairs make it possible to stimulate human vertical desires. The staircase is an icon symbolising political power and a religious way to the sky. The staircase also appears in the parable of life. In Edward Mendelson 's Seven Stairs of Life, he described seven stages of birth, childhood, growth, marriage, love, parents, and the future. The artistic curves of the staircase can even lead to voyeuristic curiosity with the addition of hidden visual elements. I use the various image of stairwell and stair and imaginary picture in the video work to create what I feel about meaning of the stairs in many ways visually. And I use holographic Rear projection film in dark room as much as a Camera Obscura to create a space or non-space and use the reflection of the stair.

BODY(THE NECESSITY), 2019

Video work

The dual interpretation of man is an interpretation that explains man in two units: mind / reason / soul and body opposing it. We regard the human essence as spirit / reason / soul, and divide the body into the prison of the soul, the Platonic thought, the reality that thinks of man and the extension reality of body, Cartesian thinking is among metaphysical interpretations of metaphysical view of reason. Nietzsche defines all interpretations that divide human beings into two units, either the body center or the center of reason, as a metaphysical view of human beings and misinterpretation of human beings. The strategic concept chosen by Charlatstra to overcome these interpretations is the ‘body'. Artist use the water and air bubbles like flow of concept of body to explain of what is fundamentals for life. In conceptual and minimal images creates abstract portrait of body.


The House (In Shorditch, London).2018

The House (In Shorditch, London).2018


Shoreditch is one of the trendy and fashionable location in London globally. But this building is located in there which no one can realise where or what is this style is from ( Even the British never expect that it is captured and being in London). This shown building is just the opposite image that the people living in the locality or visitor that area. The brutalism has been lifted and waited alone with generating pollution. When the artist shot the scene, there was a storm from the Sahara Desert, this is captured original weather on that day.

The dust from Sahara desert recreates the area look like ghost city and the reflection cannot interpret this scenery is reality or virtual space. Through this regionalised building, the artist talks about modern society and ambiguity and the problem of gentrification in it. Furthermore, the artist tries to emphasise the incompatible relationship between the city and the image of work through giving the information of the position.


쇼디치는 런던에서 가장 핫하고 트랜디한 장소중에 하나이다. 하지만 이 뒷 면에는 어떤 양식인지 적어도 영국의 건축 양식은 아닌 영국인이 이 사진 어디서 찍었냐고 되물을정도의 어디인지 알 수 조차 없는 스타일의 건물의 모습과 그 타운을 드나드는 사람들과는 정반대의 흉물스러운 건물이 철거를 기다린채 방치되거나 사막의 모래 바람같은 오염먼지를 내뿜으며 있다.

촬영시, 그 날은 사하라 사막에서 불어온 황사가 그 모습을 더욱 고스트시티처럼 만들었고 이 모습은 또한 현실도 아닌 가상도 아닌 그 자체로 정의 할수 없는 무언가를 보여 주었다.

사진 속의 이미지는 그 날 그대로의 조작되지 않은 도시의 민낯이다.

이 지역성마져 무시된 건물을 통해 작가는 현대의 사회와 모호성과 그리고 그 속의 젠트리피케이션의 문제 그 일그러짐을 얘기한다. 그리고 또 작가는 타이틀과 함께 장소의 정보를 제공함으로써 그 도시와 이미지가 주는 상반되는 관계성을 더 강조하고자 하였다.


I choose the stairwell for projecting my video as a time warp or an orbit to trap the figural toy in the video called ‘Limbo’ from Dante’s divine comedy. I choose the stairwell (and stair) which is characteristic and identified installation can move vertically before inventing the left in architectural history.  I feel there is potential that I will make work to combine the concept of deconstruction in the physical and philosophical way.
