presentation


The battle between Romeo and Juliet is a lonely task. For the two who believe they are united in love, for their bodies, it is a "fight against the changes that are in front of them," and that place, the moment, is their own.

 

And the battle between the two ends in a tragic love in each loneliness.

The fight for us, it's also in the private room of the toilet. It is truly a "fight against the changes in the body in front of us", and it can be said that there is no overwhelmingly lonely work that has been handed down while confronting all ages and environments so simple.

 

In this work "ROMEO and TOILET", we draw the crystals of love that appear at the end of each lonely work. Then, the moment the crystal of love falls into the toilet bowl, the next tragic love knocks on the door of the kitchen, and the dry sound echoes lonely throughout the all-standing venue.
