Youngho Kang | 99 Variations

The metamorphic alchemy of the camera and the mirror

Inside me, there are gods, men and women, and androgynous beings. They co-exist with my present self, and ‘we’ are all interrelated.

I brought a key, the camera, opened the door to the secret passage, the mirror, awakened my mythical archetypes, and lured them out into the world.

To be connected to another ‘me’ reflected in the mirror, with an endlessly switching spot, is a kind of communication that blurs the distinction between the image and the reality. Which, I discovered at the end of my work. Music was turned on, and I took pictures of my selves while I danced and acted. It is at such times that myself and another me in the mirror are mixed. And the clear, objective ‘I’ soon disappears. The subject and the object endlessly switch spots, causing the fixed identity of me to disappear.
