 Suture of the Aesthetic Surgery series is a 1min-38sec single channel video projecting pictures of the May-18 movement victims being patched up with the photographs of people today shoot from the same angle. The wounds and blood on the victim’s body are covered with the pieces of modern people’s pictures shot from the same angle. With its surface treated, the images of victims no more bear disturbing traces. The tools and suture methods used in this video are the ones used in actual surgeries.


 시리즈 <Aesthetic Surgery성형수술> 중 <Suture꿰매기>는 희생된 주검 이미지에 나타나는 상처나 핏자국 위에 똑같은 구도로 촬영한 현대인의 이미지에서 추출한 표피로 꿰매는 1분 38초 분량의 싱글채널 영상이다. 겉만 회복된 이미지는 피도 상처도, 다른 보기 싫은 부분도 보이지 않게 된다. 이 때 외과 수술에서 사용하는 의학 도구를 사용하며, 실제 피부 봉합 시 적용되는 꿰매기 방식을 실시한다.
