BIO

“I do not construct reality – my body is reality”

Yong Sun Gullach is a Korean-Danish artist living in Copenhagen, Denmark. She works feministic interdisciplinary with performance, text, sculptures, film, sound and activism – investigating the endless reconstruction transnational adoptees are forced to endure in the neo-colonial global North, the body in diaspora being an archive and a vessel for trauma and pain. 

Her works have been curated in Europe, North and South America and Korea. She has in 2019 and 2020 received funding from the Danish Arts Foundation for Visual Arts.

Performance: Liquid territory of confinement

Territory is a portion of geographical space that coincides with the spatial extent of a government's jurisdiction. It is the physical container and support of politics organized under a governmental structure. It is an independent political power, with social ties to a “parent nation.” or under political control by a nearby nation. It is mostly occupied by settlers from the “parent nation.” It has a short-term status while waiting for full rights.

Through confinement of both humans and other species, the physical containers are limited to an absolute minimum in order to restrict the possibility of creating territory and independence. By not occupying but being occupied the body in itself becomes a territory occupied by the parent nation itself. You do not own the borders of your own body.

In this piece, the artist will investigate confinement as both a mental and a physical limitation to the body.
