  • Catalogue Essay

    I maintain a kind of territory where my position could not be fully definable or cultivated, therefore instrumentalized by anyone else. It is a ‘territory’ where one can become a ‘poet-activist’ who has the potential to act radically. This radical action doesn’t immediately accord with the commonly recognized concept of democracy and it even appears often in the non-political realm. Yet, in this sense I am truly interested in how one could be a political being.Haegue Yang
