“‘Han’ is a Korean word that describes a sense of one’s loss, grief or 'shared suffering'. I trace connections in transferred individual and collective memories, particularly linked with intergenerational experiences, revealing fractures created by loss that perpetually affects understandings of our past, present and future. Various marks, gestures, and actions are archived in performative videos, preserved images and objects, which embody space and time.”
