The Story of The Pig, 2016 Color digital video with sound 8 min., 42 sec.
The Story of the Pig brings the viewer through to an absurd techno world where pigs adopt human-like debased actions, clicking photos of each other as they perform, breeding conformity and haplessly surrendering their freedom – They are destroyed by power in the first chapter (A world related to Aldous Huxley’s 1984) and self-destroyed by entertainment in the second chapter (A world related to George Orwell’s Brave New World) of the video. I appropriated the song “Fantastic Baby” from the Korean pop band BIGBANG, in which the pigs become infatuated with pop culture and ultimately become fans themselves of BIGBANG. BIGBANG’s “Boom Shakalaka” takes control of everything. The pigs lose their inner feeling and both their rational and creative spirit from a grotesque overdose of stimulation, entertainment and desire.
