On the 12th of October 2016 (my 28th birthday) during residence at the MMCA Changdong, I begun ‘durational performance with hand tie’ for 1-month. This tie was made from my childhood hanbok my mother sent me from Australia at the beginning of the residency.

Upon joining my two hands together for one month,

in the interest of certain gestures,

I chanced upon a circle.

Within this circle came light and darkness,

bowls of noodles and sets of clothes,

water, conversation, people and things.

Other circles joined with mine to become bigger.

The flow in and around the circle was observed.

Objects can connect and open the circle,

but can also get stuck.

Such a space must be cleaned regularly.
