K-SARAM solo exhibition at Geumcheon Art Space is a display of three prior works and a work-in-progress by Alisa Berger.

The project „K-SARAM“ is an experimental docu-fiction on the Koryo-saram community in Rostov-on-Don, a southern russian city, and the hometown of my korean family and their community. The film is centered around a memorial mourning ritual „Jesa" 갸바거기 제사 for my passed away grandfather: Korean family members from five different countries meet in Russia to show their respect and love to our grandfather. The performance of the ritual shows roots of korean tradition but also displays an interesting transformation it came though: A combination of multicultural heritage and atmosphere. At the same time the film is centered around a second event that took place at the same time: The thanksgiving celebration „Chuseok“, which displays even more the nostalgia of ethnic koreans, which is mixed with an identity crisis caused by a through two generations rooted homeland love to Russia. This special homeland love offers another insight into soviet history and post-soviet thinking. The work is centered around stereotypes of nationalities, the history of korean diaspora, the wish of the Koryo-saram of a unification of South and North and displays of collective memory, using the technique of anecdotes and reenactment. The fictional part is centered around South Korean ghost stories and the real appearance of the ghosts of migrants whose transformation was not succeeded.

The title refers to the today very popular K-export-products like K-Drama, K-Pop, etc. and to the name that the Soviet-Korean diaspora uses instead of the South-Korean term itself "Koryo-In".

Additionally her past video work „Three Borders“ will be shown, which also deals with family history and migration as an existential metaphor. Three Borders is a 55 minute long found footage film reminiscent of Chris Marker’s La Jetée (1962). It consists of family photos of the artist and of other anonymous found photos. In the style of Magic Realism the video narrates anecdotes of from the families of Alisa Berger’s Jewish father and her North Korean mother. The work was commissioned by Goethe Institute Moscow for the 2017-2019 traveling exhibition „Die Grenze“ and is since 2019 distributed by CFMDC - Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre.

Additionally Alisa will present a recent video- and performance work that she realized in her ongoing duo-collective BERGERNISSEN with Lena Ditte Nissen. The video „Awakening: Destruction“ became part of „DonginDongin linked 2tㅓs 동인동인東仁同人“ group exhibition for which the organizers exclusively translated the subtitles into Korean. The video consists of an allegorical healing procedure: through an incident forbidden, contaminated by PCB, destroyed art objects from the studio of BERGERNISSEN are presented within a ritualistic performance.
