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.
