My work consists of wearable objects and photographs of models wearing the object. They are a symbol of self-defence against physical, linguistic and psychological forces in the real world. As a blood scab naturally protects a wound on the skin, unconsciousness also instinctively aids the defensive system against psychological attacks from the outside. The most significant reason why this defensive system occurs is ‘fear’, which is caused by one’s previous traumatic experience. Fear has two extreme dispositions like two sides of a coin, consisting of defensive and offensive characters. When an animal is wounded, it becomes more violent and, consequently, more offensive. In my work, the symbol of these aggressive aptitudes is the horn. As you might know, amongst mammals, only herbivorous animals have their own horn as a defence from carnivorous animals. This is the compensation as a result of evolution to adapt them to the environment. - Jung Ki Beak
