Sep 28 - Nov 11, 2017
Private Collection: Unperformed Objects is the first UK solo exhibition by South Korean artist and performer Geumhyung Jeong. Jeong has built up a collection of 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.
 
This new installation 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. Displayed alongside are videos of Jeong performing with the ‘performed objects’ not present, those modified by Jeong and activated in durational performances where they are first used in intended and routine ways before Jeong’s movements morph into erotic, obsessive, or antagonistic actions. In this light, the ‘unperformed objects’ become a collection of relics of a notion of civilization that Jeong seeks to challenge.
