Min Jeong Seo - To live on
infusionsbags, roses, 2005

The stalks these flowers are already dried up but their blossoms are preserved and kept fresh by the medical infusin bags. The life-span of every living creature is limited.The infusion bags stand for the progress in medicine and the prolongation of human life.They somehow carry an ambivalent message as they refer to both death and life an the same time. Both states are immanent here. To preserve the beauty of the flowers artifically with the help of the infusion bags points out man’s inclination to repress the fact having to die and to postpone death
