A visual exploration of the abandoned site of the former Armed Forces’ Hospital in Gwangju, South Korea, through rubbles, dusts, wild grasses, debris, ruins and human bodies. Haunted by memories of the failed democratic uprising in May 1980, the hospital opened in 2018 as a special site for the 12th Gwangju Biennale.
