Jange Rae

Jange Rae uses the existence of mutants as a mean to understand human activities that are indifferent to their space and time. What they care about is only performance: how their own self shall exist. As with mutants, issues on essence is irrelevant to be brought forward and it is because of that, the space and time become pliable between the nostalgia and the future. We can make them present in our performance wherever we are.

Jange Rae interprets mutants as a broad process: either as a scientific engineering or as natural genetic. Of course mutants are an issue of genetic process, hence comes the complicated problem of definitively understanding it: that the genetics, with the advances in cutting-edge technology, are capable of turning the human bodies into whatever they desires, including turning them into half-robot, cyborg. Are mutants identical to cyborg? – while in the initial understanding, mutants are result of genetic process that occur naturally in the human evolution.

Mutants, according to the concept of Jange Rae, in their function are aesthetically presented. Genetic diversion would absolutely bring forward visual tension – but perhaps for only a while. It will soon be replaced by an awareness that mutants are a generation whose inner self is aware of the binary relation and they perhaps even exceed it. And therefore they become a generation –X. Furthermore, Jange Rae emphasizes that mutants are no other than urban aesthetics!
