Establishing relations between me and society
Jin-yo Choi takes interest in the process of which an individual is socialized and he talks about “frames” such as the social system, institutions, and the structure in which an individual is internalized in the process of establishing relations. In the beginning, artist Choi set up a virtual system and described every step of the process in detail and showed the aspect of an individual as part of the process. However, he soon started to proceed with works by projecting the indistinct individual onto the artist himself. For the last 3 years, artist Choi has been conducting an experiment of directly delivering his serial works in the form of a publication to the audience. In this process, it was necessary to form standardized “frames” so as to effectively deliver it to as many people as possible. In a sense, such “frames” can be considered an indispensable choice for carrying on with his works. Recently, apart from the publication form, he also proceeds with a variety of events and performances to establish relations with the audience.
