The Forbidden Entertainment

Heejin Jang

The Forbidden Entertainment presents a series of experimental video, reaching the edge of a cultural fissure through reediting and overlaying found footage and contemporary music TV broadcasts. It is an investigation of very different media cultures that surround the artist: South Korean and North Korean pop cultures. The convolution of stretched and dismantled footage not only fuses the separation of both two Korea’s cultural identities, but also discloses the taboos drawn on both media culture: banning the act of looking at the audiovisual entertainments of counterparts, and the denial of facing the beauty of each other.
