    CONTOUR | X to X presents a collaborative project of Dutch and Korean artists, Ted Oonk and Su Jung. Since 2015, the project has focused and tried to shine a more plural light on the typical romantic connotations connected to islands. It mainly consists of written letters, verses, photographs or video. The material deals with the island as an unimportant and forgotten place, twisting the collective implications of utopia. The photographs show a collection of insignificant objects that have become imaginary artifacts. The text-based pieces describe an nonexistent place contrary to utopia; in the narrative, the island becomes a space for digesting a certain loss, disappearance and absence.
