I am looking for a model who is willing to urinate in a bathroom where a camera is installed. (The recorded video will have blurred out the face! and I NEED YOUR HELP!!)
From October 1, 2018 to October 3, 2018 I will film in the bathroom of “Project Space” in Berlin. It will be photographed or
filmed at an angle of “illegal footage”, similar to the one shown
in the attached data (me from a test shoot in 2018) with all of the personal characteristics of the model blurred. During the exhibition period, we will only screen pre-recorded video and will not live stream. It will be paid in accordance with the Korean porn market’s pay, which is only 20-50 cents per shot. The project is intended to be a video work screened at a group exhibition in Berlin, Germany during October 5, 2018 to October 12, 2018.
Obviously, I will treat your help with great respect and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask so I can explain the details more and we can talk about it!
So, from that sentence alone, you can imagine that this is a bit difficult to start writing about. I am Yun Hye. This project is linked to the project titled ‘Definition and Collapse of Private Space’, which I have worked on in 2012 and 2013. The aim of the project is to depict one’s loss of personal space (on a short-term basis) as they enter and use a public toilet. This will be achieved by install- ing a camera under the sink of a public restroom within a general public building that will in turn take video of the subject (under the knee and foot) entering and using the “private” bathroom in public restroom. Return to current project,
As part of the group exhibition under the theme ‘Gone Sexual’, I am showing my work as a glimpse/question of moral standards of mankind, but only as depicted in Korean pornography.
I do not expect my work to be seen by hundreds of people, so I am not concerned with any compensation for myself. I hope to achieve the small satisfaction gained by 10 to 20 people stopping into the exhibition space, subsequently visiting the bathroom within the space, and coming to the realization that they were in the same place as the video. And I am curious to know that after this realization, will they wonder “Am I being filmed? Is someone watching me now?.” I hope that the person would feel some kind of emotion; anything from discomfort or anxiety, anger, disdain, or an inability to understand - this is part of the notes of the work I have planned.
I am in a society where even the minimum moral standard point in everyday life has collapsed. What can be done in a society where even something as private as a restroom has been compromised to the extent of potentially being seen everywhere? In Germany, where I work, hidden cameras, revenge porn, and the like are NOT seen as mainstream porn, but are instead quite taboo. Unfortunately, in Korea, this is not the case.
