These works are based on image material which I collected during a three-month artist residency in South Korea in spring 2015. They aim to capture and transmit the specific atmosphere of the city of Seoul between excitement and exhaustion, attraction and tiredness. My research on this topic was inspired by the writings of South Korean philosopher Byung-Chul Han, who referred to his homeland as a “fatigue socity in terminal stage”.
