Placeless Space ('Turbulence and the White Girl')— Crystal Kim Chul Hyeon (수정다슬출현)


Crystal Kim Chul Hyeon (수정다슬출현) is a Seoul and Los Angeles based artist collective consisting of Crystal Sujung Park and Dasul Kim. Crystal Sujung Park is a theater actress and Dasul Kim is a visual artist.Art cannot be separated from social issues. Art is life and life is art. We have become difficult to have physical access to art due to the global Pandemic. Now that virtual space has turned into a meeting place, art has also changed its way of delivering it. We wanted to see how theatrical performances could interact with audiences in virtual space. We organized a Zoom-based play called 'Turbulence and the White Girl'. It evokes the current situation and lets people think about what it means streaming a play in virtual space, and an airplane as a nomadic and placeless space.About midnight on March 29, a plane leaving San Francisco for Korea. Quite a few people were wearing full-body suits, goggles, hats, and even masks. The story begins here. One girl armed from head to toes with a white mask, lab coat, hat, and goggle sat next to the main character A, white girl didn't eat anything including water. Suddenly, they went through turbulence. During the 45 minutes of anxiety caused by turbulence, the main character A falls into deep thought about this series of situations. A was thinking about various ways of responding to Pandemics, will to life of the white girl, 2 layers of threatening from pandemic and plane crash, and life and death.This project intertwines irrelevant and spontaneous elements found in an individual's life with social discourses. By doing so, it became a kind of motley black comedy that criticizes society and speaks of a sense of futility through absurdity and silliness. Besides, it talks about a new way to survive and exhibit/perform an art piece now.We choose 9 scenes and submit still cuts of them. You can check the full version of the video here:www.dasulkim.com
