When looking at collective gymnastics in Asian countries, such as Korean National exercise and Japanese Radio exercise, their histories and the process of settlement into the societies are similar to that of Asian modernity in East and South Asia. Through the project, the artist tries to develop a platform to discuss the relationship between individuals and communities/societies with a critical point of view.
