A village loosely inspired by a north korean propaganda village ,Kijong-dong. Hayoun KWON reveals a setting and 
invites us into a fiction ,carrying out the journey by proxy. this film testifies to this ghost town in its true state as a mechanism of fiction. the reality of a border confronted with its staging. this village can only be reached within our imagination.
Hayoun Kwon was born in Seoul (South Korea) in 1981. She first studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Nantes, and then graduated from the Fresnoy – Studio national des Arts contemporains in 2011. Her work revolves mostly around the notions of memory (wether individual or collective), boundaries and limits, questionning the blurred lines between intention and interpretation, construction and fiction, recollection and invention. She examines the ambivalent relationships between reality and fiction.
