Comforter, 2017

Photo by Wonjun Jeong

The project "The Comforter" is a series of photographs portraying boredom with partially exposed body and a blanket on a bed. The thought of the future brings me anxiety and fear, but from my daily life I feel boredom. At those times, I lie on my bed and pull up the blanket over my head and the complicated feeling spreads internally, tormenting and confining myself. But I began to wonder, whether the feeling was truly my internal problem or due to an external influence. By blocking the vision, one recognizes one’s humble existence with an internal gaze and expresses futility, fear, relief and anxiety from daily life and moreover, the suffocating reality.
