: International artists and curators can be very 3noisy2 and 3wild2 when abroad and in a strangely isolated and privileged context. French songs, French wine, French 3amour2. Nothing is really easily available here in Kwangju, Korea. One of the artists went to Seoul and returned with a little knife that was supposed to protect women from losing their virginity before marriage (suicide afterwards). But he lost his virginity in the street in the style of many young Korean men before they are entering the military for almost 3 years: for 60000 won (about 70 $).
