Okjoo Kang - Arrival and Departure

Okjoo Kang's 6th Solo Exhibition
from 20/05/2018
The station where the work was conducted is a place to which everyone belongs but nobody belongs. It is the utopos where someone passes through rather than resides really. The working title of this series was 'Gare' because I planned to work at 4-5 railway stations at Paris. However, pondering upon characteristics of the station as utopos, I reconsidered the title of the series. Besides, 'In Travels with a donkey in the Cevennes', Robert Louis Stevenson wrote “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” I came to feel great sympathy toward it so titled , paying attention to ‘The great affair’.

While observing people, I felt movements for arrivals and departures seemed to be quite dynamic but in general they were for waiting. It was the static time something was being pursued. In other words, they were a kind of silent movements. It gave me an opportunity to rethink travels. Maybe travels are composed of repetitive arrivals and departures. Furthermore, it was an intriguing fact that people staying at the station were not necessarily travelers. Arrivals and departures are not movements only done at a station during one’s journey. Travels and routines are mixed with each other.
