Rehab Training

una performance di Geumhyung Jeong

12/11/2020 - 14/11/2020
P420 Bologna

Giovedi 12, venerdì 13 e sabato 14 novembre 2020, alle ore 19.00 (*) Live Arts Week IX presenta Rehab Traininguna durational performance di Geumhyung Jeong, negli spazi della galleria P420.

Artista e performer, Geumhyung Jeong osserva da vicino la sua società di provenienza, la Corea del Sud, e il suo intrico di convenzioni e credenze, sogni e desideri nascosti, spesso tenuti assieme da una morale contraddittoria. Laggiù, accanto al consumismo sfrenato e al trionfo del tecnologico, in una società ancorata al comando patriarcale incluse le politiche sessuali e di ruoli (potere e piacere), continuano a sussistere fantasmi, spiriti e revenants ancestrali. In coreano 그분(Gbun) è il termine che designa l’istanza che prende una decisione: non è né personale né collettiva, né soggettiva né sociale. Viene, si presenta e scompare. A questa modalità sembra ispirarsi il procedere dell’artista, che ha un background tra coreografia e animazione. In Rehab Training Geumhyung esegue un programma di training applicato ad un manichino maschio a grandezza naturale, usato nel settore sanitario per formare gli infermieri, in un ipnotico ciclo di lavoro. Emerge da un iniziale atteggiamento clinico e impersonale, nell'esecuzione di compiti semplici e concreti per la riabilitazione di questo 'lui', un duo coreografato che si evolve attraverso manipolazioni, gesti e sguardi, evocando potenze di dipendenza, fascinazione, frustrazione. La riabilitazione è un percorso nel perturbante in cui sfuma il confine tra soggetto e oggetto. Muovendosi lungo questa linea sottile tra esecutore ed eseguito, tra performer e performato, Geumhyung rende visibile l’ineludibile legame tra il nostro corpo e il desiderio macchinico.

E' in corso Upgrade in Progress, la prima personale di Geumhyung Jeong in Italia (Fondazione Modena Arti Visive, Palazzina dei Giardini, 6 marzo > 20 settembre 2020).

Rehab Training. South Korean choreographer and performance artist Geumhyung Jeong always falls in love with the objects she handles and collects. Her approach follows the logic of invocation and incantation, and draws from both the puppeteer’s knowledge and actor's technique. 그분 (Gbun) is
the instance that takes a decision. It is neither personal nor common, neither subjective nor social. It comes, performs and disappears. In South Korea, alongside mass production, consumerism and technological saturation, in a society anchored in patriarchal command including sexual and role policies, ghosts, spirits and revenants are still pretty much alive. Geumhyung Jeong looks closely at this society, its often contradictory convictions and morals, its dreams and hidden desires. She slows down the speed of her being, and turns this prolonged temporality into uncanny sensuality. The performative situations she establishes are vortexes, in which the living and the non-living meet. In Rehab Training she invites the audience to witness her programme of physical training for a humanoid dummy, clinically rehabilitating ‘him’ by means of concrete tasks. A duet evolves from common gestures, gazes and manipulations. She moves oscillating between a service professional’s distance and a personal touch, between human flesh and the objectual presence of plastic and metal, between herself and the technically mediated world around her. Moving along this fine line between executor and executed, between performer and performed, she transcends the dichotomies by undermining given patterns, constantly renegotiating the relationship between the human body and the objects or machines that surround it, between subject and object, the master and the slave. Who controls who?

The first solo exhibition of Geumhyung Jeong in Italy, Upgrade in Progress, is open at Palazzina dei Giardini, Fondazione Modena Arti Visive, from 6 March to 20 September 2020.
