“You See the Woman” is originated as a two-channel video installation. The channels are projected separately onto two screens, facing each other at a distance. The locations of the screens allow the viewers to experience only part of the story but not the whole at the same time.

 The work draws the audiences into a controlled distance to observe "the woman," where vulnerability is unveiled, externalized, and repeated in raw, honest, but also partially concealed forms. It invites their understanding but also rejects a complete one. This process mirrors how recurringly do we attempt to understand one and the other, but almost always fail to a certain extent.
