In Korea, some critical historical truths are either manipulated by the original recorder, or are intentionally changed during the occupation of other countries throughout history. In modern Korean society, Korean history is further manipulated through different media, wordings on textbooks and opinions of individuals in society. Moreover, Korean history is not a famous subject of debate among the young public, which further veils the historical truth from younger generation.
It is undebatable that our retrospect on history is melted down and deformed. On the broader sense, we wish to pinch the manipulation of history throughout the countries. People’s view of history is always subjective despite good record keeping.
This is a sketch for the installation.
