Like many of his contemporaries in Korea, Park Chan-kyong’s creative path has always been dynamic. After cutting his teeth as an art critic, Park has gone on to produce multimedia artworks, curate large-scale exhibitions and also create moving image works, sometimes in collaboration with his brother Park Chan-wook (The Handmaiden). Running through his practice, we find a deep engagement in modern Korean history, in particular the separation of North and South and the wider geopolitics of the Cold War era. In this programme we present three formally different works which are connected by their interest in what seems ungraspable, and even absurd, about the relationship between the two countries.
This screening will be introduced by Helen de Witt. Helen de Witt is a lecturer at Birkbeck University of London and programme advisor for BFI London Film Festival Experimenta.
