Stand alone’ is the story of an attachment doll that has a relationship with its dog, Typhoon(artist dog’s name). Just as we spend time with various objects in our daily lives, my companion dog is no different from our lives. It is an amazing and emotional moment for me to see ‘Typhoon’ that was once an abandoned dog become my brother and family. We have objects we love. With that target, you can confidently overcome difficult moments. The object of this affection is this sculpture titled ‘Stand alone’.
The teddy bear work is a story that started while preparing for a solo exhibition at a gallery in Seongbuk-dong in 2019. As I have been working on space installations due to environmental issues, I have been thinking about doing something trivial but looking into everyday life. Looking at the space surrounding me, I couldn’t leave out Typhoon a 9- year old stray dog. Currently the teddy bear that becomes the motif of Dauntless is Typhoon’s favorite doll. In meantime, he has given many dolls, but the only friend of Typhoon who is still in good condition is a teddy bear. Whether it be a person or animal, there is a target that they love, and through that target, they are comforted and gain strength to move forward. My journey to continue working is actually exhausting. I use the title, Standing Alone, with the hope that I must overcome the uncertain future and reality and move forward confidently.
