For this exhibition, I decided to show what I have collected over the past 10 years (2008-2016/2019-2021) that I feel particularly connected to. So the theme of the exhibition is "how artwork should be placed in relation to this room".

At first, I started by cleaning and examining the entire room. By taking the time to observe, I noticed a variety of characteristics of the room, such as the round window, electrical switches, plumbing, floor features, multiple outlets, etc. and then I tried to figure out how should I place the works in relation to the characteristics of room. After few days, while I tried out various arrangements, I realized that I was only thinking about placing works, so, I became conscious of the necessity to reduce or not place things, which were not necessary.

When the objects unrelated to the location are exhibited, I wondered if the meaning of exhibit the work in the location could be created by being aware of the features of the location, rather than ignoring them as a hindrance. This is my attempt to complete my intention of turning attention to things that are essentially useless to the world.
