SYNOPSIS

The work is based on René Magritte's "La condition humaine” (1935), which is a view of the outside of the cave superimposed on a canvas. The camera captures landscapes of caves and bunkers in Jeju Island as having quotes from Hollis Frampton’s "A Lecture” (1968) performance script. 

PROGRAM NOTE

The landscape is a natural scene mediated by culture; simultaneously, it is a represented space and a contemporary space, as W. J. T. Mitchell puts it. Indeed, landscapes are intertwined with many things. In Jeju Island, where picturesque landscapes include fortification tunnels from the Japanese colonial era and natural caves where victims of the Jeju April 3rd Uprising and Massacre were hidden, what do we see when capturing the scenery with a camera? Just as René Magritte questioned “the conditions of the representation,” the film invokes Hollis Frampton’s sentences dealing with the optical properties of the medium to remind us of the conditions of perception when looking at a place.
