Koo Jeong A

Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, Dusseldorf

The artist works in the only inadequately describable field of the ephemeral site-specific installations or seemingly enchanted everyday minimalist aesthetics.

Curated by Gregor Jansen

The ar­tist Koo Je­ong A (born 1967 in Seo­ul) works in the on­ly in­a­de­qua­te­ly de­scri­bable field of ephe­me­ral si­te-spe­ci­fic in­stal­la­ti­ons or see­mingly en­chan­ted ever­y­day mi­ni­ma­list aest­he­tics. Wor­king in such di­ver­se dis­tinc­tive me­dia as drawings, pho­to­graphs and of­ten spa­ti­al in­ter­ven­ti­ons, the em­ploy­ed ma­te­ri­als and ob­jects are usual­ly things that ha­ve on­ly be­en ne­gli­gi­b­ly al­te­red: Sta­gings ta­ken from ever­y­day li­fe. The com­mon place is ar­ran­ged in the space in such an ex­tra­or­di­na­ry pre­cise man­ner that new per­spec­tives on the mun­da­ne ob­jects in­e­vi­ta­b­ly re­sult. Fi­gu­res and spa­ti­al struc­tu­res thus emer­ge from the as­sem­bled in­di­vi­du­al parts, the ob­jets trouvés, which fea­ture a pic­to­ri­al lan­gua­ge of its own – a phi­lo­so­phy of things per se.

Koo Je­ong A has crea­ted a new si­te-spe­ci­fic in­stal­la­ti­on for the Kunst­hal­le Düs­sel­dorf, the secret of which the ar­tist is safe­guar­ding even du­ring the pro­cess of pre­pa­ring the ex­hi­bi­ti­on, so that all the par­ti­ci­pants will su­re­ly be cu­rious to dis­co­ver what will re­sult from the me­ti­cu­lous in­ter­play of ob­jects and the space, in the fi­nal ana­ly­sis wi­th the sub­ject. As is the ca­se in the ar­tist pu­bli­ca­ti­on that ac­com­pa­nies the ex­hi­bi­ti­on, vi­si­bi­li­ty li­ke­wi­se first emer­ges he­re through the in­di­vi­du­al se­arch for exis­tence and ti­me.
