THE WAYS OF FOLDING SPACE AND FLYING

The project by the two artists is based on the Korean words chukjibeop, a hypothetical Taoist method of contracting physical distance and enabling travel in a more limited space/time, and bihaengsul, the supernatural power of flying and travelling through space and time.

In the history of Asian culture, these ideas have been explored through meditation and methods for achieving a state where the body and mind can break free of physical limitations. These methods reflect the human desire to overcome perceived physical barriers and the structures that hold us back, in spite of the apparent absurdity of this desire.
