Act of Alignment is an intimate invitation by Hee-Seung Choi to rethink the concept of togetherness.

While spending Covid-19 lockdowns abroad and alone, artist Hee-Seung Choi started thinking of the word 'togetherness' as a process, instead of something that comes with the package of shared experiences and purposes. Struggling with being open when meeting new people, Choi is drawn to the word 'alignment' as it assumes starting from a place of willingness and openness with respect to each other, aiming to meet each other on the same vertical or horizontal axis. Not expecting all interactions to turn into meaningful relationships, and believing that noticing differences--the 'otherness'--is instinctive and natural. But in this recognition of 'otherness' the artist would like to see the possibility of 'being-for'. Act of Alignment is an invitation to think about this possibility together, from a very personal and self-revealing standpoint of the artist. The essays, drawing, videos and exercises in this publication are built on Choi's personal observations, experiences, and interpretations both as an artist and a person belonging to the world.

Hee-Seung Choi (1976) is an interdisciplinary artist and classically trained musician. She moved to the Netherlands after receiving her Master of Music in Composition from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD to continue her studies at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague where she received a Bachelor of Fine Art in ArtScience. She draws her inspiration from familiar signs, routines, and arrangements found in everyday life and works in a combination of media, including video, performance, sound, and installation. Text has always been an integral part of her work as her artistic conversation is closely intertwined with literary discourse. She lives and works in Amsterdam.
