Seoul Express is an artist group composed of JEON Yujin, and HONG Minki, who each have been active in the fields of music and film. The group conducted a research project, 〈My Backyard: Excavating Memories〉*, in 2023 ACC Interactive art Lab, and the work derived from the project, 〈Colors Lasting for a Very Short Time〉 is presented in the exhibition. There is an abandoned space where past history and lost memories remain like traces. Rather than being a fixed place, the place is more of a temporary passage and a portal to another world. This passage and its short journey, defined by variability and temporality, address the fateful limitations of all living things on earth and evoke the communal nature of beings who coexist with each other even for a moment. Through the process in which visual elements scattered in fragments establish close relationships back in time and become to shape, it makes us look at ourselves as a finite human life, a temporary existence in an infinite world.
