Description

For Clockshop’s fourth annual Community & Unity People’s Kite Festival, artist Yaeun Stevie Choi presents Fight for Flight. Her kites honor three animal species native to Los Angeles; the El Segundo blue butterfly, Least Bell’s vireo, and North American cougar; to advocate for their right to thrive and share these lands alongside us. The Korean fighter kite, Choi’s chosen form, was the subject of a ban on kite-flying during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the early 1900s. Despite this, kitemakers persevered, using their creations to call attention to colonial transgressions against their freedom and the environment. Choi’s kites uphold these legacies of connection between people, land, and the liberatory struggle against dispossession and extraction, and the form itself becomes a vehicle for ecological protest here and everywhere.

Our “Protect Public Skies” shirt takes inspiration from Choi’s Fight for Flight kites.
