Goodbye to Love

Survey Broken Heart Story (since 2013)

Artist Hyesoo Park has been collecting real stories from people's past :

especially, those personal stories about failure, invaluable story, personal memories and everyday life.

This project focuses on lost love. So, she have collected the broken heart Stories told by ordinary visitors at the Jan Van Eyck academy (NL 2014) and MoA Museum(Seoul, Korea 2013).

Park collected 50 kinds of broken heart story using typewriter which she had installed at the cafe of JVE in Sep 2014~ Dec 2014.

Then she requested participant artists of JVE to write a new story(fiction) which was based on the collected real broken heart stories. there was no specific form and quantity in new writing and artists could write and read it with their own language.

And Park creates a confuse space where coexists with real and fiction through mixing the fiction and real story in Open studio in JVE(2015).

I was not a bitch.,

and he didn’t love me.




3. After out break up I didn’t feel any sadness in me.

or anything that may be felt by someone.

That I just had a break up.

Maybe It’s because we had been a long distance relationship for a long time.

And our love may be faded.

It’s so sad. I wanna cry...

now smoking his cigarette trying to forget her.

I really didn't know.

I told him It was over.

I was very sad Love impossible,




10. She let me know it's quite painful to be alone.




13. It all started out as something worth living for:

I thought It was love, but as It turns out it wasn’t.

She was the first woman I ever loved, but I was just a material to her.

Something she could have, use,

something that made her feel like she had a purpose in life.

When I finally realized...

It was impossible to get rid of her,

she wouldn’t let me go. I had to lie about cheating on her (and getting very sick) to finally be free .
