Green Yearning
Army uniforms, acrylic, polyethylene foam

“In the work ‘Green Yearning,’ I covered pieces of army uniform with hand embroidery: a teddy bear as tall as a person, a large bullet, and bristle blocks.

In this work, I tell the story of the “second generation,” the story of my family.

The softness and the laughter which covered the voices of war.

The mischievous ball which has to remain silent.

The father-bear who was embalmed in a battle suit.

And the cubes which fell because they could not bear the pain and the concealment anymore.

Everything is sewn like an embalmed mummy, which covered the life.”
