Angel Soldier by LEE Yong-Baek
Video performance featuring soldiers in floral camouflage. From National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea:
Angel soldier is a video performance in which, through the drastic contrast between angel and soldier, without any logical proceedings and explanation whatsoever, directly and frankly expresses the social conditions of our generation. Perceptional and emotional values in an artwork are entirely different from those of an academic study in that an artwork is free from logical proceedings. The strength of directness is like a poem. If a movie is like a novel, than an artwork is like a poem. Lee Yongbaek is an artist who is able to capture this advantage and strenth an artwork.
