Min Oh composes short visual narratives. Her videos and performances often involve constructing elaborate power games, exposing a dialogue between the pleasing and the disturbing. The use of playful yet manipulative forms not only seduces the viewer into a false sense of security, but enables her to scrutinize the topics of violence, power and control. Her recent work deals with play, the rules we construct for ourselves and the control they in turn have over us.
