About the work:

Kelvin Kyung Kun Park’s work: “Army ” is a portrait of soldiers who serve in the mandatory military service. The relationship between the individual and the collective is rather paradoxical. The video details the intricate bodily movements and emotions of individuals who form a collective body. Unnerving images describe an individual body entangled to the collective, to show an individual body that is divisible.
