Jongno-gu District, Seoul
'2020', artist Koo Jeong A's first solo exhibition in Korea
In the light people may wonder what they are looking at
When the lights go out,
luminous stars brighten the dark room
It's like walking through space
Outside the gallery,
there is a fluorescent skate park
The series has attracted international recognition from a whole host of events
such as the Triennale Milano and Liverpool Biennial
A fresh collaboration between art and skateboard culture
Koo Jeong A subtly incorporates everyday objects into her work,
to playfully help viewers imagine another realm
separate from the mundane reality.
Behind me is the painting 'Seven Stars'. It's made from fluorescent materials
that store energy from light and shine in the dark.
