JaeWook Lee's project, Perfect Lovers, redirects the given meaning of Felix Gonzalez-Torres' artwork done with clocks from the gender issue of homosexuality to cultural and political homologization by the issues of power between the U.S. Army and other nations.
For his performance, it entails two people holding identical clocks in the exhibition space. One of the performers will be dressed in the U.S. Army uniform, and will be standing and marching with another performer from different nationality.
