Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Kim, Mihyun Maria

Han is an untranslatable Korean affect associated with historical unresolved grief, separated families, and loss of collective identity. Han is an accumulation of intergenerational trauma, which in the North American context has been sustained by suspended assimilation and dislocation/migration. Through relational methodology, the in/visible limits of its translatability are revealed/concealed. The Measure of Han, exhibited at Ignite Gallery, Toronto, brought inherited and copied objects, ritual in repetition, sound/video, and daily artist activations together in a temporal installation as the outcomes of the MFA research-creation.
