Name Project : IVan Party

2006 ~ present, Paint on wall, print on paper
Since 2004, I have held parties with my gay friends celebrating the end of the year and the beginning of a new one. In 2006, I also started to create posters that commemorated these parties. These posters were made using the signatures of the men who had attended the party. In having the signatures laid on top of each other, the individual identities of the men were protected while their collective existence was visualized. Even though the party poster was composed of the names and signatures of the partygoers, only the names of those who had already come out were made public. The party poster thus became a record of the everyday lives of Korean gays who cannot exist except as an anonymous group, as well as the social/cultural limits of Korean society, which render them an anonymous minority.
