"I don't think we did go blind,
 I think we are blind, Blind but seeing,
 Blind people who can see, but do not see."

 - extracted from novel * (José Saramago, 1995)
   (*The Korean version title of translates literally as 
<City of the Blind>.)
 
This work is the new one of the series. I painstakingly scratch off text from [The New York Time]’s Trump Inauguration Edition and Korean newspaper [The Chosun-Ilbo]** news of President Park apologizing for corruption and cronyism scandals. (Finally, President Park became the first to be ousted as a result of impeachment. She still denies all charges against her.) (**Chosun-Ilbo is the leading newspapers in Korea. The overall tone of the paper is extremely conservative and biased.) 
Scratching is a struggle to keep everyday lives against massive irrationalities of the society at a slow pace. And it's a small resistance against countless spectacle which is taken for granted.

-

Sohyun Han delves into anxiety. She observes ‘Now and Here’ which is taken for granted. She tries to stare at the alienated or hidden ulterior values in the relationship between everyday life and social system, and between the private domain and the public domain, and record them in various ways. Essentially all artworks can be said to be continuously thinking about ‘how to live'.
