Fire is the power of creation. Fire has become a major means of human life. People say that Homo sapiens evolved through the use of fire. Fire was regarded as a force of change or transformation. As seen in Seolwiseolgyeong, exorcism in the Daejeon and Chungnam regions, Korean shamans burned talismans to unleash captured spirits. Through the fire ceremony, they believe a certain substance is transported to other spiritual dimension. Fire is a declaration and a revolution. We can find in many myths the story of fire taken from a god (the absolute). And we light our hands at the point of change.

Fire was also used as punishment as seen in depictions of hell in both the Buddhist and Christian traditions. In medieval Europe, those who opposed mainstream beliefs like strong-willed women and homosexuals were burned at the stake. The contemporary derogatory term β€œfaggot” is derived from the bundles of wood used to burn gays and lesbians alive at the stake called faggots.

In this exhibition, the shaman (HornyHoneydew) uses fire to transform humanity into the posthuman. It is said there are two types of spirits within a human – Honbaek: the cloud soul that goes up to the sky and the white soul that goes back to the earth. Through the fire ceremony, the shaman sends a part of the human to the sky with the cloud soul in order to send mankind to a new planet to escape from this perishing Earth. Humanity becomes smoke and evaporates in order to leave the Earth and start again on a new planet. / written by Dew Kim
