Koo Jeong-a

Av Lars Vilks - 23 augusti 2009 11:41

Koo Jeong-a was born in Seoul in 1967. Her subtle installations, which allude to the histories of Performance and Conceptual art while poetically highlighting seemingly unimportant everyday items and materials, often border on the invisible. For the exhibition Unfinished History at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis (1998), the artist created a shelter in the corner of the gallery, where she hid during the installation of the exhibition. When the shelter was removed, the artist had filled the corner with papier-mâché. This trace of her presence was titled Humpty Dumpty. Oslo (1998) is a miniature landscape of crushed aspirin on a small wooden base in the corner of a dimly lit room, and South (2000) consists of an overheated room and a mound of red earth assembled on a table.


Jeong-a has had solo exhibitions at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (1994 and 1997), Moderna Museet in Stockholm (1998), and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (2004), among other venues. She has shown regularly in group exhibitions since 1994, including the Venice Biennale (1995, 2001, 2003 and 2009), Kwangju Biennale (1997), International Triennale of Contemporary Art in Yokohama (2001), and Biennale of Sydney (2004). In 2002, she was a finalist for the Guggenheim Museum's Hugo Boss Prize. She lives and works in Paris.
