Dreams

These photographs are visual descriptions of the psychological aspects of dream sequences. Rejecting the imposition of narrative, this series is complex, fragmented and composed of subtle feelings. The arrangement of the photographs into diptychs and triptychs does not suggest a reference to the symbolic forms of religious art but instead helps the images to express the feeling of the surreal events they describe. Baek’s choice of medium is deeply appropriate, as the isolated moments that are captured and documented in the images recall the fleeting, disjointed memories of dreams that leave lasting impressions. Unexpected humorous elements and embedded symbolic objects connect the images to actual dreams, and these photographs can only be fully appreciated upon close inspection.
