Interview with News 1 (in Korean)

My Theresa Hak Kyung Cha Project was discussed in Curating the Legacy of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha by Paul O'Kane in Third Text.
*Correction: In the article, the author states that my Theresa Hak Kyung Cha Project was a comissioned project for the exhibition A Portrait in Fragments in 2013, curated by Bea de Sousa. This was not the case. Theresa Hak Kyung Cha Project is a project that I have been working on independently and it was already in production when I was invited to participate in the exhibition.
