ABOVE UNDER SKY (2014)
The piece, inspired from George Orwell’s book 1984, was my first experiment with installation art. From polyester, I created a life-size naked Kim Jong-Un, the leader of North Korea to sit in a corner of the room and sew shut his genital. Series of political events at the time in Vietnam and North Korea about censorship and the control of personal ideology through mental torturing inspired me to think about the act of sewing one’s genital – denying one self’s of his needs and desires instead of overcoming the challenges to fulfill them.
