The story of Penalty for Litter stems from an object found on the street. It is marked with a red sticker that reads, “Penalty for Litter.” Discarded objects pile up under the streetlamps in the alleys. They are all marked with a red sticker. Anything that is not thrown away properly is subject to a fine. These objects exist on the fringes of life without a name and only as the subject of a fine. What stories do they hold? Their stories are told in a documentary format that includes a video of the artist’s search for discarded objects and an exhibition of these items onstage.
Eunji Son, the founder of Creative Space : A Room of One’s Own, is a creator and director who collaborates with artists from various genres. Mainly working with objects that have unique properties, she studies the materials extensively before presenting her discoveries or images onstage. She spends a great deal of time on research to understand the properties of objects, and based on this work she then unravels her stories.
