"Commuting lives" is about commuting distance and time in the city. The city is central to civilization and socio-economic activities, and therefore continues to gradually expand and become concentrated. In this context, sub-centers and new towns have been created to disperse the city's growing population; yet infrastructure, such as schools, workplaces, and entertainment, are still located in the center of the city. As a result, many people who live in the city and its vicinities spend a certain time and travel certain distances in their lives, which is a phenomenon occurring in cities throughout the world. In her practice, the artist Yangwoo Kim has focused particularly on the lives of individuals commuting distances in cities, and she will introduce the resulting works and records during the three days of this exhibition. Specifically, she will present the outcomes of tracking three individuals and their lives spent commuting in each respective city of Seoul (South Korea), Johor Bahru (Malaysia), Singapore and Tokyo (Japan).

*Note: The artworks exhibited are interchanged daily. All artworks are part of an ongoing continuous work.

This project is supported by Arts Council Korea.
