Minji Yi records the human body(s) that she observed while passing through the tangled time with pandemics because of the ecosystem by photos, video, and text. Where moving is not easy and feels the body of oneself and others, she focuses on finely vibrating bodies and gestures. Ghost Motion, which is also the title of the exhibition, is a movement that not written in the sheet music, which means that the drummer moves part of the body consistently to come up with the beat of the song he or she plays. In this way, yoga trainees listen to the sound of breathing and repeat their movements, while the performer plays his timeline by moving his lips small and counting the beats.
Minji Yi deals with the body and the sense of the body as an extension of the concept of 'time difference' between 'that we see' and 'that we haven't seen'. Scenes like listing film's screenshots, and retinal gestures repeatedly blurring and not blurring, often evoke a sense of eliminated -sound, vibration, and sense of touch-. At this time, the photographer's ghost motion, which holds the things that eliminated between movements and movements synchronizes the sense of the past accumulated in the body and the sense of imagination stretched out from the body.
