SONG Juho pursues the tension and amusement that occurs by combining heterogeneous elements in the medium of erformance/visual art and conventions found in genres. The artist analyzes an interest in the inner space of the human, and externalizes it through specific phenomena and the artificial movement of theater, rather than through the epic narrative that follows the flow of introduction, development, turn and conclusion or the main character’s psychological self-confessions. The artist created a performance production project ‘Diorama Vivant Theatre (DVT)’ and is involved in directing, and stage design. The stage of DVT functions as a erformance device for generating a phenomenon itself, rather than being the background for a narrative. The audience captures the trace of theatrical space-time devoid of the presence of the body. In Diorama, and through Tableau Vivant, they find the performers’ physicality and the clues from direction. Through the combination of transitional media and genre the artist questions what a performance is in the age of moving images.
This year, he will produce a work useing both port cities, Incheon and Mojiko as references. Focusing on the emotions and sensibility of two words ‘waiting’ and ‘remaining’ from both cities, he is hoping that the work becomes to be about the phenomenon and mobility that generates this sensibility.
