This is an online preview only. The film is part of the project "Anatomy of the Bow" ( 2012). More info:
The video, Anatomy of the Bow: Speakers, was created by sequencing materials from the photo-archive of the Korean Women Workers Organization (from the period from 1987 to 2010). The video, made of archive photographs, creates a moving picture of a fragile social body: we can see the women speak, but their voices remain silent. The assemblage of photos of women taking part in public speeches is combined with the voice-over reading of an excerpt from the Dictee, written in 1982 by a Korean-American writer Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, a text that almost anatomically describes the ability and struggles of speech as a bodily experience from the female perspective.
