Poster image for i kiss : Greet your Great friends!

Statement:

Β«i Kiss: Greet Your Great FriendsΒ» is based on Jacques Derrida’s subversive thoughts, exploring the ways to deconstruct the unilateral relationship of human beings with animals and make a new connection.
Factory farming system that emerged after the Industrial Revolution, that is, artificial reproduction and slaughter, reckless hunting and the destruction of ecosystems due to forest development, now clearly turn up ominous symptom. Natural disasters, the disappearance of seasons, and the climate crisis have evoked many discourses surrounding life and animals, and repeated creation and conflicts. Environment groups have emerged, and the controversial concept - animal rights emerged. However, in today's society, which is deeply intertwined with capital and science, such movement is too weak, so development and destruction are accelerating towards socio Entropy.
What attempts can we make to disassemble deeply intertwined and firmly entrenched mechanical capitalism in society? We can find something for this in the text Β«L'animal que donc je suis (Γ  suivre)Β» published by Derrida.
Derrida rethinks the whole meaning of suffer for animal others through philosophical deconstruction, and suggests reviewing the whole recognition system through problems of suffering common to humans and animals instead of language, the framework of human intellect. He evoked the absolute passivity of suffering, and summoned the fundamental feelings of compassion not only for animals but also for life as a whole, including humans. And what we're given in the end would be a question of the relationship between animals and humans.
This exhibition re-translates the paradigm of animals, which has been defined in human language, adopting by Derrida's suggestion. Starting in this point, we might be able to find a clue to genuine coexistence, not only for human beings. We review the relationships within the neoliberal worldview where humans and animals are mixed, examine how they existed, destroy the paradigm, and reconnect animals and me through visual experience.
First, in section , we re-construct animals presence and their connection with surroundings in their natural states. Focusing on animals as creatures living finite lives, we examine the interrelationships of the numerous societies and actors surrounding them.
Next, section deconstruct the fauna connected with people as the object of affection. With the recent sharp expand in the pet industry, high knowledge and obligations of animals as caregivers or protectors tend to be required. On the other hand, we look at the newly emerging animal fauna called β€œCompanion animals”.
In the last section , we will examine the images of symbolic animals that have become separate from their natural context and take new characters. Animals have been positioned as divine beings, or abstract symbols since humankind society was built. The deified animal has been separated from its intrinsic position, get immortal life, and has been misunderstood or worshiped. We will figure out how these aspects of animals relate to human culture and also how these things are affecting real animals.
Β«i Kiss: Greet Your Great FriendsΒ» imagines these heterogeneous networks of animals-human beings with eight artists who show outstanding insight about animals and explores the possibility of new - sustainable - relationships and coexistence of the world that will arrive. Through various media and themes such as painting, digital painting, video, sound, and branding design, we deconstruct the connection between humans and animals and expect to shift the perception structure.

We Disappeared, It Opened

Goeun Kim

Human being has disappeared and the cage has opened. Those living in the zoo has come out of the open iron gate. They feel the solid asphalt by stepping on it or pushing hard their bodies against it. They create a huge curve between skyscrapers and glide under the cold obstacles. Overflowing food and entertainment! There is no underdog and top dog in here. Who says the city isn't the place for them? Well, if there ain't no human beings, is that a CITY? or NATURE?

I like cats’ attitude. The way they stare with the third-persons’ view. It seemed like my attitude toward life, so I created β€˜Yaongman’ as my persona.

Utopia

Utopia: A perfect society with the best conditions that man can think of. Humans love and cherish animals, so they decorate them beautifully, lock them up safely and keep them healthy. Does the best human condition take into account animals? Are animals loved or decorated perfectly? Is the object of greeting really loved?

When I stare into you, you stare back at me.

Sudden eye-contact with my cat right after waking up from a nap, I felt my heart drop. It was because I felt she really β€˜saw’ me. I would never forget the feeling of that moment. You think of me as much as I think of you.

The Changed Island due to Will

Yuna Jang

Since ancient times, humans have changed the natural environment for themselves. Even a very small and slow change, the ecosystem surrounding us now has become a different appearance over and over again after thousands of years. And this change would have come as a bigger change for other living things based on the ecosystem. In the Galapagos ecosystem and the survival of animals became the motif. I noticed the differentiation of iguanas, which lived separately by sea and land, depending on their prey. Although it seemed barren and hard life from the human point of view, but it is the survival method that Iguana chose after a long time, so I thought it should be respected enough. tells the story from the perspective of plants and animals that are much more directly affected by the ecosystem. For a more direct and clear expression, this story begins in ancient times. Through this project, we indirectly experiences the fear of change in animals as trivial human actions.

Penguins are loved by many people for their cute appearance and behavior. However, compared to this interest, the situation of penguins endangered due to the climate crisis is not receiving much attention. This is not just a problem for penguins. The climate crisis is a reality for us and a task to be solved. In particular, designers are in charge of the production process, so they are not free from the responsibilities that occur in that process. So we need to seek more sustainable methods. started from these ideas and presents 'sustainable production and consumption' through the form of a stationery store. Stationery is also a small, daily object easy to access, but it is one of the most difficult trash when disposed of. In addition, because of the monopoly of the hypermarkets, stationery stores are in extinction like penguins. With stationeries, tools for recording, Pengcil aims to represent things in danger of disappearing, and shows virtual stationeries divided into three categories: sustainable materials, process, and usage.
