Ying Min Goh
In order to "clean out the enemy", the Imperial Japanese Government committed many unthinkable atrocities during WWII. Along with the infamous Nanking massacre, there were many other lesser-known atrocities such as the Sook Ching/Dai Kensho which means 'purge through cleansing' in Chinese and 'great inspection' in Japanese. The 47x47 abstractions photographed with a cleaning camera evoke how the same thing seen from the same distance can be morphed into a different meaning through propaganda, just as individuals were made ready to commit the horrors in the original images. This work can be exhibited in its grid form as large prints or in its progressional sequence as a digital projection.
