In addition to the traditional forms of visual art, methods, and material selection, the work interpreted through the selection of ready-made objects presents a reference to the elimination of boundaries between these fields by using everyday objects alongside traditional sculpture techniques. The coexistence of these two elements continues a play that moves from the body to the object and from the object to the body. The tension between fiction and reality causes a chain reaction between the body and the object. As Ponty expressed, "We can only access every existence outside of ourselves through our bodies, and every existence outside of ourselves thus takes on human qualities and becomes a mixture of soul and body."
In this work, the body takes on the form of an object, and the object takes on the form of a body. With the "Fragments of Memory" series, objects that infiltrate the body become objects that are no longer used but hold a special place in our memory, transforming into a mixture of soul and body with human qualities. The relationship between the colorless state of the body and the colored object, the state of assimilation, and the object's feeling within the flow of the body can be read through the shift in subject-object positions, with varying degrees of unity and sameness in this contrast.
