Places to Hide

  •         When I was a little boy, I used to like hiding in a quiet and isolated area. It could be under a desk, in the corner of a balcony, or inside a closet. Whenever I inhabited certain private spaces, it gave me a feeling of security. I believe that feeling is derived from a homing instinct which causes animals to go back to their primal territory. Unlike animals such as fish or birds, which have places to go some day; human beings, unfortunately, have no way of returning to their homing territory, the womb. I do believe human beings have an inherent longing for a place like a womb in that it once provided us with a comfortable, quiet, and safe place as well as nutrition when we were infants. For this series titled "Places to Hide," I intended to project this human desire for an enclosed area by placing naked bodies in those tiny spots, suggesting them as infants hiding inside the womb in urban cities.
