Persona video series
Persona series is a video trilogy. "Persona: can you see my face?" shows repetitive attempt of taking the mask off from the face. This attempt unveils the perpetual desire for searching for ones own identity. The layers of the mask display unattainable and indefinable state of one's identity. In juxtaposition, "Persona: make-up" creates a new identity by covering up the face with the act of putting make-up on. The daily activity of putting the make-up on the face is used as a metaphor of building, making up, a new identity in our everyday life. The performance captured in YOON CHO's work is the result of her experiences in social and physical surroundings.
