People Objective 사람 객관적

- On the Ethical Politics of Performance 퍼포먼스의 윤리적 정치성에 대하여

The project, People Objective, started in 2011. This project began by inviting people Gimhongsok knows who are closely related to himself in his personal life as an individual in the society he belongs to or in his career as an artist. These invited people are not only physically but also conceptually related to Gimhongsok. ‘People’ who accepted his invitation are actors, actresses, docents, critics, and day workers. This project which consists of performance-focused artworks was completed with the point of views from actors and actresses (People Objective-Of Ordinary Art, 2011), docents (People Objective-Wrong Interpretations, 2012), critics (People Objective-Good Critique, Bad Critique, Strange Critique, 2013), and laborers (People Objective-Hourly Art, 2014).

During the artwork, People Objective-Hourly Art, day workers completed drawings, paintings, sculptures by wiping, sanding, brushing and drawing lines. The time to complete a piece of artwork varied from 1 hour to 30 days. Gimhongsok paid wages according to the wage standard proposed by the labor placement office. Gimhongsok got artworks done by laborers, the laborers obtained wages through relatively easy physical labor. Such a relation shows not a cooperative structure with both equal sides but a state of labor employment for production of the manual industry.

2011년부터 시작된 People Objective 프로젝트는 김홍석이 미술가로서, 소속된 사회의 한 개인으로서 자신과 물리적으로나 개념적으로 가깝게 관계된 ‘사람들’을 자신의 작품에 초대하면서 시작된다. 그의 초대(또는 고용)에 응한 ‘사람들’은 배우, 도슨트, 비평가, 일용직 노동자들이다. 퍼포먼스 중심의 작품들로 이루어진 이 프로젝트는 배우 중심적(People Objective-Of Ordinary Art, 2011), 도슨트 중심적(People Objective-Wrong Interpretations, 2012), 비평가 중심적(People Objective-Good Critique, Bad Critique, Strange Critique, 2013), 그리고 노동자 중심적(People Objective-Hourly Art, 2014) 관점에 의해 완성되었다.

작품 PEOPLE OBJECTIVE – Hourly Art 에서 일용직 노동자들은 김홍석의 지시(요청)에 의해 걸레질, 사포질, 붓질과 선긋기를 통해 드로잉, 회화, 조각 등을 완성하였다. 하나의 작품이 완성되기 위해 길게는 30일 짧게는 1시간 정도 소요되었으며, 김홍석은 인력사무소에서 제시한 임금기준에 맞게 임금을 지불하였다. 김홍석은 노동자들의 작업에 의해 미술품을 얻게 되고 노동자들은 비교적 손쉬운 육체 노동을 통해 임금을 취하게 된다. 이러한 관계는 양쪽의 평등한 협업적 구조가 아니라 수공업적 생산 과정에 위한 노동 고용상태를 보여준다.
