Geumhyung Jeong: Homemade RC Toy

Kunsthalle Basel

03 May 201911 Aug 2019

Kunsthalle Basel presents South Korean artist and choreographer Geumhyung Jeong‘s first solo exhibition in Switzerland, Homemade RC Toy.

At once tender and unsettling, the films, sculptures, installations, and performances of Geumhyung Jeong are often studies in animism of some sort. In the exhibition Homemade RC Toy, she focuses her attention on the erotics of technical animism with a large-scale installation comprised of numerous robotic sculptures built from DIY technologies and short films demonstrating the strange choreographies to which she subjects her “homemade” bodies. Like so much of her work, the ensemble questions the boundaries between desire and control, human and machine, animate and inanimate.

Performance | Geumhyung Jeong at Kunsthalle Basel during Art Basel Week
9 – 12 June 2019 (Sun to Wed), daily at 2 pm
14 – 16 June 2019 (Fri to Sun), daily at 7 pm
