Insane Park collects countless images delievered by different media that we encounter in our daily lives. He edits the images taken from television, internet, movies, and magazines through duplication, dispersion, and magnification. In his work, texts appropriated from advertisements, captions of television shows, or memorable lines from movies are often mixed with disparate images to generate mutant images. Such a way of creation resembles how information is produced by the mass media. The main subject of Park’s works in the current exhibition is ‘ideology is gone, but image is left.’ By collecting and editing images or texts that drift around incidents and phenomena that took place with the generation of certain ideologies, it tells about how the mass media edit images or what ideology is produced through the workings of the mass media.
