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 said “so I thinks we should talk about the fact that I’m moving to a different continent.”


He said “I ‘ve meaning to talk to you about that but I didn’t want to be sad.”


We decided to break up when my dad picked me up to bring me to the airport the next morning.

We haven't talked since.
