The Sangmugwan was used as a body checkpoint where the bodies of the victims who were killed during the 5.18 Gwangju Democratization Uprising were temporarily stored and confirmed to their families. It is made of foam board and 4 small video cameras are slowly moving inside the unstable, large and empty model, and the two images are installed inside and outside of the model and projected to the exhibition wall through the wall of the model. It is shown to the audience in real time. Through this, the boundaries between inside and outside are broken down, the shadows of images and projection lights overlap like layers, and my memories and history, victims and perpetrators, the past and the present are engraved on the walls of the exhibition hall as illusions.
