Artist Statement : Thoughts, Reflections, Intentions:
Absence vs. Presence : Ae Ran Jeong March 2004
Sometimes absence tells time and defines space clearer than presence. Absence evokes memory. Memory takes place in a very specific time and space. The contents are missing but traces are left in the sand. The objects move (escape) into the ocean, yes in the sea salt ocean. The memory is poured out swiftly as if sinking into the sea salt. Yet it is the water that is missing. Just as objects erode, the memory fades. As the objects are pushed onto land again, a weathering transforms them. They return into the earth, the memory becomes who she is.
The cycle of life/memory.
An adventure with risks,
and hopes to grow and deepen who she is.
SHE . . .
