Geumhyung Jeong

Homemade RC Toy

Part of “Spy on Me #4”

Combi ticket: four performances for €40, reduced €30


80 min.

One of South Korea's most idiosyncratic and advanced artistic voices, Geumhyung Jeong creates works at the intersection of choreography, performance and visual art. At the centre of “Homemade RC Toy” are robots developed and built by Jeong herself, with which the choreographer and performer creates moments full of mutual care, empathy and sensual interaction. If the robots seem robust at first, they slowly reveal their fragile character when they are started to be activated for the shared choreography. Part of this installative setting - which is already accessible to the audience before the performance - are videos through which Jeong's relationship with the robots and how they are created by herself become perceptible. “There is a codependency, but in the end, machines do not need us. We need them,” the artist said in an interview with Kate Brown (Artnet, May 2021). Geumhyung Jeong's robots are also currently on display in the exhibition “The Milk of Dreams” at the Venice Biennale.
