Details

Kelvin Kyung Kun Park's Invitation to a Peaceful City, poetically mediates on the various forms of cultural resistance and simple quotidian ways of making do, that a variety of displaced Korean villagers have made after being first displaced by the Japanese and then the US Air Force. Park's work sensitively speaks about the conflict that has arisen between the locals who are now tied into the economy of the base and others who still live under its shadow.

Kelvin Kyung Kun Park recently screened work at Rencontres Internationales, Paris; the Seoul Independent Film Festival, Seoul; the LA Freewaves, Media Arts Festival, Los Angeles and at the B&W Gallery, California Institute of the Arts, California. He was born in South Korea and lives and works in Seoul.
