· artist statement

<우리 사이 거리를 봐 Look at the gap between us>는 2022년부터 진행 중인 디지털 아카이브 이미지 프로젝트이다. 본 프로젝트는 전 지구적 팬데믹의 발발을 전후하여 다수의 서구 미술관을 중심으로 시작된 Open Access* 움직임에서 영감을 받았다. 개별 작업을 이루는 이미지는 별달리 완고한 기준 없이, 즉각적인 인상 혹은 환영적 끌림에 의해 채택된다. 수집된 이미지는 이미지 편집 프로그램으로 다소간 변형이 가해지며 원본으로부터 떨어져 나온다. 본래 작품의 이미지가 지시하는 바와 단절되어 재제작된 디지털 원판은 얇은 사무용지 표면에 가까스로 안착한다. 이미지의 입자는 현미경적 근접촬영으로 가시화되면서 원본성에 교묘한 훼손을 일으킨다. 이미지 판단 과정에서 의도된 지체는 이미지와 우리 사이의 거리를 벌리고 잠시간 가벼운 응시를 제안한다.
