NOH Suntag (born 1971, Korea) explores the way in which the Korean War is still alive and present in today’s Korean society. It is to investigate the gaps in the “power of division,” which often instigate interpretations that work for their own advantages by including war and division in the fixed chapters of history. His major solo exhibitions include Forgetting Machines (2012) at Hakgojae Gallery, Seoul; really Good murder (2010) at Sangsangmadang, Seoul; and Lunatic Fidelity (2010) at GoEun Museum of Photography, Busan. His works have also been shown in group exhibitions such as Oh My Complex at Württembergischer Kunstverein, in Stuttgart, Germany; Demonstrations-Making Normative Orders at Frankfurter Kunstverein, in Frankfurt, Germany. In 2012, NOH was awarded the Dong-gang International Photo Festival prize, and in 2014, he received the Korea Artist Prize from the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Korea.
The artist presents two series of works which were shown in the first Real DMZ Project in 2012. In 2012, these works have been exhibited at several places at Cheorwon National Security sightseeing. The artist captures people who have visited the site, and for those having met at the national division one can see the desire towards the north.
