UJIN LEE

Bojagi: Empty is not empty. Full is not full. II was a site-specific project for Tompkins Square Park in New York City on September 11, 2010 by Ujin Lee.

She presented a four and a half hour performance of carrying and placing 733 hand-carry sized boxes in random patterns in an open space. Each box was wrapped with traditional Korean wrapping cloth, or bojagi, made of pongee fiber. When the 733 boxes were installed, the public walked around and de-installed them by moving the boxes and creating their own installation for two hours.
