Time to be confirmed
Born in Seoul in 1971 Suntag Noh works in North and South Korea. He explores the way in which the Korean War is alive and well in today’s Korean society. He looks intently at the gap in the ‘power of division’ that often pits sides to interpret things to their own advantage, and this includes war and division in the fixed chapters of history. The ‘power of division’ is a monster presently operating and creating havoc in both South and North Korea. Taking all that is oozing from this monster—spit and thick blood, madness and silence, benefits and damages, bursts of laughter and cynical smiles, and stoppages and flows—in the form of image and words, Suntag lets them all parade by. In such a way he tries to reveal the political landscape of the Koreas of today.
