In 2020, the National Theater of Korea hosted a performance titled the “Shaman and Photographer.”
As Shaman Lee Hae-gyeong allowed a spirit to possess her body with a traditional Korean Gut photographer Kang Young-ho captured the spirit with his camera and projected the image up on a screen in real-time.
As I was watching this performance,
I suddenly remembered Carl Jung
Religion, alchemy, and spiritualism are activities in different fields that try to realise the divinity within human beings yet to manifest itself because of various mental problems.
