李庸白 Lee Yong-Baek 韩国 South Korea

《天使士兵》是在一部视频展示作品,通过天使和士兵之间的剧烈反差,在没有任何逻辑程序和解释的情况下,直接且坦诚地反映了我们这一代人的社会现状。在这件作品当中,李庸白通过识别矛盾主体,即天使和士兵来质疑文明的本质,并将仍处于停火其间的韩国社会进行变形。士兵们穿着印花军装在人造花丛林缓慢前行。他们的伪装,欺骗和绝望的行动展现的正是韩国的现状,这当中的四国(美国、日本,中国和俄罗斯)以及南北韩的利益和战略交汇编织成为秘密。自2005年以来,《天使士兵》已经被生产并发展成各种形式的版本,有装置、单频道录像和摄影作品。 Angel-Soldier is a video performance in which, through the drastic contrast between angel and soldier, without any logical proceedings and explanation whatsoever, directly and frankly expresses the social conditions of our generation. In this work, Lee questions the nature of civilization by identifying antinomic subjects, angel and soldier, and distorts the social situation of Korea, which is still in a ceasefire period. Soldiers wearing military uniforms in flower prints slowly move in an artificial flower jungle. Their camouflage, trickery, and desperate movement present the current situation of Korea, in which the interests and strategies of four powers (US, Japan, China, and Russia) and those of South and North Koreas cross in secret. Since 2005, Angel-Soldier has been produced and developed with various versions of performances, installations, single channel video and photography.  《天使士兵》,2011年,单屏录像,23分,图片由学古斋画廊提供 Angel-Soldier, 2011, single channel video, 23mins, Courtesy of Hakgojae Gallery

Known as the representative artist of media art in Korean Contemporary Art, Lee Yongbaek visualizes unique political and cultural issues of Korea as well as the narratives of existence and intuition of human beings in various ways: his media includes single channel video, installation, performance, sculpture and painting.
