Artificial Paradises pretends to be an own and very concrete paradise, in a very specific place. Paradise is a “fence” created by men. It is a place of perfection in nature, of reconciliation with our origin, of serenity towards the near. The paradises are there, they wait for us, we win them at times, they expel us from them to recriminate (ourselves) with their existence. Artificial Paradises is made in the three most important cities of South Korea: Seoul, Busan and Daegu.
