Geumhyung Jeong  Fitness Guide

source: newmuseumorg

For Fitness Guide (2011), featured in the Triennial, Geumhyung Jeong modified a series of exercise machines, readjusting key parts and activating them in a durational performance. The performance begins with Jeong using the machines in routine ways; gradually her movements morph into erotic, obsessive, and antagonistic actions. By feeding her own energy back into a cyclical machine, the artist posits the female body as the locus of reproductive responsibility within a gendered, exploitative economy.

La Coréenne Geumhyung Jeong n’a pas besoin de plus pour songer à sept duos audacieux. Elle transforme son corps avec autant de facilité qu’elle modifie les objets de tous les jours. La danseuse et les objets jouent un jeu de séduction et d’érotisme, de désir et de fantaisie. Ils se fondent en un ensemble très intime. Sept petites scènes qui, d’une manière surprenante, vous conduisent vers le sommet.
