Shijang by Saehee Yoon

Video animation

An exploration of a fading sensorial memory from a Korean street market (시장 shijang). Common market foods are given life and movement through the transformative power of decay and destruction. As a hazy memory of ripeness and nostalgia gives way to one of decomposition, an essence of beauty and familiarity is maintained. In this textural world, nothing dies or is forgotten; it is merely given a new mode of animation.
