Right on the border between South and North Korea at DMZ Dae Myoung Ri, Gimpo, by walking across the beach sand on which my footprints were the only human marks, I have left an imprint of my own mandala: body's square as a symbol, a sign of concentrated hope.
By leaving an imprint of his palm on the walls of Altamira, prehistoric human has announced the arrival of visual arts, and in the beginning of 20th century Kazimir has summed up the entire preceding art into one symbol – a Black Square, through which he proclaimed the end of objective and the beginning of the new non-objective art.
By leaving my footprints in a minefield within the demilitarised zone and sublimating these two symbols into the interspace between the conflict zones, I have positioned the act of mandala imprinting into the present-day and the current political context.
