CHOI Minkyung, Dina MIMI
Visual Arts Contemporary Arts Feminism
Korean artist Choi Minkyung and Palestinian artist Dina Mimi, who cannot leave their parents' houses, share certain experiences of living abroad and feelings of not fully belonging anywhere in the world. The two artists exchange "video letters" filmed in their family's living room, wearing green screen, discussing their concerns about belonging, alienation, survival, and art. The green screen allows them to erase themselves from their environment and plays a role in projecting the missing outside world in the picture.
