To Become Weightless, 내가 죽어야 한다면 is a re-enactment of the historical narratives surrounding the construction of symbols for peace. The work draws on the Peace Palace and it’s foundation stone in The Hague - along with the parallel history of three Korean emissaries who first came to The Hague in 1907 for the Second Hague Peace Conference. Seeking support for Korea’s independence under Japanese colonization, they were ultimately denied entry. By overlaying the names of the denied Korean emissaries onto the foundation stone, the act serves as an exercise in remembrance and re-enacting the past to uncover discrepancies in how we choose to remember.
