Anyang, Paradise City 다시 태어나고 싶어요, 안양에
In 1988, during the Seoul Olympics, twenty-two young women workers locked in their factory dormitory, suffocated from smoke inhalation in a fire in Anyang. People hardly remember this incident. Like this unpleasant memory of the past, the memory of paradise also vaguely remains. According to ancient records, a vast temple surrounded by beautiful mountains streams called Anyang-sa existed over one thousand years ago. Anyang is the concept of paradise in Buddhist philosophy traces of this temple exist. Exploring sites where different temporal spaces struggle to emerge, the camera flows between paradisehell. Rather than observing the city from a distance, Park Chan-kyong camera hunts, rests, plays like a wild animal, responding dancing with the cityscape. Originally commissioned as part of APAP 3, the work was installed in LO-TEK Open School in 2010. Ineffort to convey the film impact on the curatorial team understanding of the history present of Anyang, give the work a new context for mediation, reach a broader audience, Anyang, Paradise City is presented weekly in a conventional theater setting. Additionally, an old-style movie signboard has been commissioned to communicate the timeless sentiments conjured by the film.
