DETAILS OF THE WORK
Since ancient times, the fox, which has adapted and inhabited many parts of the world, has existed in the folklore of many places as a symbol that serves as a medium for culture and religion. The fox, which can change into either a good omen or a bad omen depending on the story, expresses the seemingly contradictory state of being something and not being something. Road signs, on the other hand, are signals that have the property of making us judge and recognize the object. I want you to perform the hand signs with your own body, to participate in the rituals depicted in this work, and to be aware of your own active perception to judge and interpret the objects. The sign language symbol means "fox" or "close your mouth and open your ears.
