  • About the work


    Invasion is a work that exposes conflicts between the external environment and the internal self. Sijong Kim, a South Korean currently living in Great Britain, documents his floating identity across intercontinental and national boundaries. He states that he does not have such a place that could be called a "hometown", due to constantly moving around. He inserts his face into historical photographs and represents himself in British and Western history. Each manipulated photograph expresses hope and an embracement of distorted self-identity, away from its ascribed condition.
