This study focus on the formativeness of the grotesque body in Dimitris Papaioannou's work and examines how the physical deformation and distortion, especially "embarrassing bizarre" that constantly appearing in his works develop in aesthetic categories. To this end, I examined his artistic perspective and analyzed four works in terms of randomly separating and combining body. Although the non-realistic body transformation in the works seems to represent the unreal world of fantasy, it is used as a means to make people through the shock of strangeness. It is being used as a device to expose conflicts arising from the current situation and to express doubts about the identity of contemporary people through contradictory contrast. This study was intended to serve as a stepping stone for the attention and theoretical discussion of the formativeness of grotesque body through the interpretation of Dimitris Papaioannou's works.

The form of art is diversified according to the advent of the fourth industrial revolution in which the data for the human and objects are collected and utilized. Focusing on this trend, this study examines the concept and distinct features of pluralism and plural art and analyzes the art works, Violin Phase(2018) by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Madame Plaza(2018) by Bouchra Ouizguen, and 10 matkaa sinne missä mitään ei tapahdu(2019) by collaborated work by Juha Valkeapää and Taito Hoffrén as plural art at National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea. Plural art is expanding its fields through in-depth interdisciplinary research. Also, each genre composing plural art works is merged and transcended one, which leads to the dissolution of the genre. Through this discussion, it is very important to count on the present and future of art.
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between perfectionism and competitive anxiety among dance high school students preparing for college entrance examination in the evaluation situation of dance competition.

Recently, as the cultural industry is rapidly growing, contents related to dance are getting popular in various media. As the popularity of dance is rapidly increasing, many studies on dance education have been attempted. However, in the case of dance there is a lack of academic research because many researches are focused on practical research compared to other fields. In particular, researches on modern dance, which is the subcategory of dance, are much more lacking. Therefore, this study systematically analyze past studies related to modern dance. Using frequency analysis, we reviewed journals, publishers, authors, and key words. Also we analyzed past research topics by topic modeling and wordcloud. As a result, we examined past research patterns and suggested insufficient research areas in order to suggest future research directions.
