ARTIST STATEMENT: As long as I can remember, my father always carried half-eaten American sweets in his shirt pocket to share them with me. He experienced the Korean War[1950-1953] and the post-war hunger when he was young. He used to chase American GI's who shared "the world's best sweets" with him. For him, American sweets meant a great relief from hunger and maybe a glimpse of the American dream. I started to make images of American sweets when my father died as a memorial project. This was my own.
