The Hitch

 Digital Video, projection in loop 29:08min

 The Hitch is a looped performance video shot in Yeouido, the business district of Seoul:
A man walking in the street is continuously being struck down without resistance by another performer, who practices Hapkido. 
The video´s repetitive and unspectacular staging, frustrating the viewer´s climax expectations, is an ironic contradiction to the traditionally heroic businessman and martial artist characters, who are depicted in a clumsy and comical situation reminding
the old slapsticks of the 1920’ s. With the kind help of Sangmukwan International training Center Ko Se-Hwang and Kim Chan Su.
