Yun Aiyoung



In the center of the work, a video projected on a mineral support. Stones posed in balance the ones and the others. A sort of cairn placed there in the middle. The image is composed of the hollow silhouette of Buddha. Like a shadow theater. But on the edges, the darkness, and in the center, the world. Views alternate. From different sources. Elaborated in the manner of a tribute - quoting the Korean artist Nam June Paik - this sequence of video images carries us away in a slow movement. The landscape moves. The wind, for example, agitates the trees. Or a repeated motif: the artist filming straight ahead, as day breaks, from a moving car. The lights inside the tunnel. The thick clouds. Later waves. The foam. The sea breaking on the rocks. More or less natural movements. A rhythm. The journey.

Around the small mound of rocks, support of the video projection, cable. A lot of them. They surround. Pursue the movement. Envelop. Each electric wire carries a color. The whole evokes an impetuous torrent. Energy in its pure state. And this one forms a circle, surmounted by a kind of waterfall. A long blue garland underlines, accentuates the drawing of the movement. Moreover, Yun has been using light, switches, or this type of garland for several years now.

And again above, running along the wall, broken lines. Is it the spring? The stream? This time, the image that comes to mind is rather that of a network of roots. Unless they are branches. Or even antennae that extend, that stretch out. Maybe they are looking for a signal, a contact.
