Young-Gle Keem makes videos with material from a variety of sources, from her own records made with cameras of different qualities to found-footage from the internet or different archives. Her pieces, which imply a great work of research and translation, could be located between the genres of video-art and fake-documentary. During the ´aceNITE of December 2017, the Korean artist presented the video Non-Fictions, that took as an axis theme different aspects of the life of Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges. The title is a nod to his story book Ficciones (Fictions, in English).
The piece shows different areas of Buenos Aires such as where Borges was born or the library where he was the director, and the narration derives through other apparently unconnected themes.
Non-Fictions is a video that “storytells” from an absurd and sort of schizophrenic point of view.
