Sintoburi, The Authentic Masterpiece
丙 소사이어티 / BJUNG SOCIETY
2019.7.10-12. Wed-Fri 8pm
Sintoburi means “As the body and the land in which it was born cannot be separated, what comes from that land best suits the body born from it.”So, what is the ‘normative ideology of Korea’ that one must adapt to in order to live in Korea as a Korean born body? Answer. The ideology that promotes a normative body embodying the ‘Korean constitution’ and that aligns with the nationalist myth. This new work looks at Sintoburi in reverse by creating a little crack to make a space and a place for the non-normative body – putting bodies on the stage that do not align with the standardized ideology and that have not been provided with a secure sense of place.

Why Have Our Roots Become Feet?
An Absent Room
Once my teacher told me that when there are two people gathered together it becomes a society. He read it in some book or something. Well then…when my neighbours Kab甲 from opposite me and my neighbours Eul乙 from next door were playing together, I thought their society might be a little boring for me so I joined them with cookies I baked and they said they wanted to play Kab-Eul game by themselves and if they left me out I would be bored and lonely and no one would play Catch-mind with me and no one would listen to me. So I looked into mirrors here and there and, Ah, I’m not alone.
And so, in this way, Bjung丙 like people will talk Bjung丙 stuff in a Bjung丙 way.
