Private Collection: Unperformed Objects
Delfina Foundation
28 September – 11 November 2017

Delfina Foundation is delighted to present Private Collection: Unperformed Objects, the first UK solo exhibition by South Korean artist Geumhyung Jeong. In her practice as choreographer, dancer and performer, Jeong constantly renegotiates the relationship between the human body and the objects that surround it. She has built up a collection of plain everyday objects upon which she bestows a bizarre, disconcerting life through an intense and risky interaction with her own body to challenge notions of sexuality, technology and the female body.

At Delfina Foundation, Jeong creates a new installation that explores the relationship between her 'collection' and her creative process. Jeong has selected 'unperformed objects' - mannequins, vacuum cleaners, training machines and medical apparatus with a latent potential. The exhibition brings the narrative of these objects themselves into play, alongside decision-making and failure in the process of making performances.
