Sadang B (2019) is an exhibition project comprised of three newly commissioned projects, Un-Splitting (Performance), The White Mask (Music performance) and To Paint A Portrait of a Bird (Installation).This interdisciplinary project questions the normalisation of extreme nationalism and social inequality by exploring the human - animal boundary through the lens of those socially marginalised in South Korea. Sadang B is suggested as a site where these enquiries can take place.

This item contains a contextual outline of the performance, an excerpt of The White Mask (5 mins), an exhibition leaflet, an exhibition view and a composite of stills from the installation.

This item documents The White Mask, a 3-screen video installation of a musical performance developed and created in a collaboration between Young In Hong and Notes Inegales, an experimental music ensemble, to address the notion of 'becoming animal' through music making.
