Jiwon Choi visits B.a.d …

Today at B.a.d, we had the pleasure of a visit from the New York-based artist Jiwon Choi, who screened her 2016 video Parallel – complete with a session of glow-stick waving! Despite this seemingly amusing characterisation of the screening, Parallel addresses the correlations between the K-Pop phenomenon – a music genre originating in South Korea, with hyper-saturated audiovisual elements and highly gendered roles – and the military backdrop permeating the postwar culture of South Korea. Parallel is a 30-minute video work Choi made for her graduation thesis for the MFA Photo, Video and Related Media at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
