«Partially Buried Continued»
Part three («Partially Buried Continued») focusses on the mingling of the past and present, what is near and what is far, what is other and what is one's self through reflecting on the photographic medium via a reexamination of images taken during the Korean War viewed by the artist as a child and through photographs taken in Korea in Kwangju on May 18, 1980 and photographs taken by the artist in Kwangju and Seoul in 1997. Questions of genealogy are continued with the juxtaposition of artistic forebears, in this case Smithson and Theresa Hak Kyung Cha and blood relations. The complexities of how we find ourselves entangled in relationships to countries, nationalities and people, to locations and to time, and to the ensuing identifications – these aspects continue to be questioned in this work.
