Numerous colonial places, including coastal cave and military bunkers on a lot of Oreums, as well as memories of uprising and massacres are everywhere on Jeju Island. This 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 quote from Hollis Frampton’s performance script, and asks media can capture the image of historic vestige on the landscape without any distortion or elimination.
