Abstract [en]

In the Korean artist Hyun-Jin Kwak's ongoing project Girls in Uniform she portrays events and moments that transgress the boundaries between the ordinary and the unknown. In her photographs there are frequently ambiguous and cinematic narratives. The pictures are carefully orchestrated and constructed, but they are not spectacular. Kwak's imagery is relatively unexplored. This thesis implements a comparative image analysis of eight of Hyun-Jin Kwak's works, in order to investigate and interpret her imagery. The analysis is based on three recurrent motifs: the uncanny, secrets - rituals and games as well as togetherness. The intention is to investigate the uncanny, which I identify in Kwak's artwork, and explore the mysterious fellowship and secretiveness that the girls have in their games and rituals. The togetherness that often exists between young girls in Kwak's photographs are put in to the context of the twinmyth.
