Hidden Violence and the Scar

Video Installation

3’30’’


As the primordial in the intimate transgressions since the comfort women during WWII to the present day, there is man’s irrepressible sex drive. And the victim gets not only physical damage but also mental trauma. I created the video installation that focus on the psychological aspect of the man’s instinctive sexual desire and the emotional scars of female victim rather than the physical violence and the injury. A pair of two screens shows the graduate change of facial expression of man when he is aroused sexual desire and woman’s traumatic suffering and sadness when she recalls the sexual abuse.
