Ways of Viewing: Workshop by Choreographer Yanghee Lee
■ Workshop led by choreographer Yanghee Lee ■ Date&Time: 10:00~13:00, October 1 (Tuesday) - October 4 (Friday), 2019
Now, we’re going to think of which language, which lens we use when we observe or create an artwork. And we start by going over what we already know. Today we’re doing this through our bodies. Where will you go? Where am I be going? Up! Look at where my arms are, what my hands are like right now at the moment. Theater is `Against`… You can go stand at some point in this Space. We can get a real closer look at… Oh, my! Someone who can accept all, give it all, try everything, this kind of attitude... This space and the stone statues are called Buksu... We’re going to do this very slowly. It’s time. Time. Something that flows, disappears to be completely gone: Disappear, Enter. (laughs) Why would I make you do this with no reason? It`s not about stepping cautiously. You don`t have to get as much as possible out of it. Just look what`s around you. You`ve got to see this. It`s very normal and not at all at the same time. We`re looking at you now. Every one of you is doing so special, I cannot even think of neglecting one... If one has to watch it more, then you`ll also have to wait. When you touch it here, you`ll know it`s quite different, the feeling and the shape of it.
You guys set up a starting point and an endpoint yourselves. You can make me do whatever you want, like we`re going to do this and then you’ll ring the bell... We`ve already begun.
These are the words, the languages we`ll be using from now on. :Begin, End, Blank space, Anticipation, Lingering sensation, Leaving behind, Disappearance, Space... (Leeum-!) Idiot, Dimension, Space, Choreography, Balance, Tempo, Recognization, Following, As time goes by, there will always be more questions. Just keep them inside you. Once you find the answers yourself? They will always be yours.

This program is to interpret artworks into words and movements through one’s own emotions.
I’m very grateful that the students participated eagerly showing true imaginations and creative thoughts on their parts, the way in which we could not expect from us adults. We will give titles to the works in our own way.
|Moving Texts| Gloominess, depth, innocence. Artworks: Zhang Xiaogang, Boy, 2009, Lee Bul, Monster: Black (reconstruction of 1998 work), 2011
|Talking Motions| We’re going to describe the artworks we’ve seen yesterday, or express the keywords we picked together through our bodies. Can you name one object that left you a lasting impression? A piggy bank, Allotment Garden…
