In the opening performance, the artist Mikyung Song is going to show how the ambivalent feeling of one’s own self coming to the surface naturally and one’s own existence fading away at the same time emerges in 'Weißes Haus'.

About

Until now „I“ am looking for houses. While on the move „I“ meet people. „I“ become the narrator and „I“ reveal my stories in the different houses in Blue House, Blaues Haus (Seoul, 2016), Blue House, Blaues Haus(Berlin, 2017), Red House, Rotes Haus (Seoul, 2017) and in einBuch.haus White House, Weißes Haus(Berlin, 2019). In this work „I“ am trying to remove the boundaries between past, present and future or forge links between them using the same but yet different stories from the book < Weißes Haus > beyond the physical space of the book. In < Weißes Haus > „I“ adapt both of those works in a changed manner written as well as in the form of sounds and performances.

In < Weißes Haus > book, where all letters have disappeared, I discover another „I“ that silently and without a word only observes. My „I“ wants to stage writings and sounds within the stories of the two < Weißes Haus > works in a paradoxical manner. They seem to coexist, but yet the writings and sounds that differ from each other separate and gather. This ambivalent „I“ is living in two different spaces filled with writings and sounds. Berlin and Seoul, the two cities „I“ live in, would shake me again and again and cause dizziness inside me. When I think about it, I am standing right in the middle of the sounds of those both cities. They pretend to help each other only to impede each other. Carrying these incomplete feelings and memories inside of me and being an existence that is a component of this world I myself am one of the sounds of this world, that I am going to show in < Weißes Haus >.​
