Kim Jisun is a performance artist who has been exploring the vague borders and cracks of the social system and questioned the possibility of sensing the self and world. . This year’s Ob/Scene Festival introduces her two works: Off Tours and The House of Sorrow. Both works travel through virtual spaces like the gaming world or the web, to question the sensations of a non/physical space, and to think about the very system of thought.
In Off Tours, Kim Jisun transplants the experience of a package tour into the form of a website tour. The audience will travel to numerous websites, looking at their history, data, and movements; these encounters will lead them to question their spatiotemporal senses.
