  • Critic's Note: Noh Suntag explores the way in which the Korean War survives and impacts Korean society. He looks intently at the gap in the ‘power of division’ that oftentimes misinterprets events to its own advantage. The power of division is a monster operating and malfunctioning in both South and North Korea. Taking all the oozing fluids from that monster - spit and thick blood, madness and silence, benefit and damage, bursts of laughter and cynical smiles - in the form of image and words, he lets them slide by. Representing the disruptive conditions sustaining that monster, he tries to reveal the politics of today.
