Koo Jeong A’s exhibition, entitled Riptide, presents 20 large-scale line drawings recontextualised from her artist book project Koo Jeong-A: R (2006). Transforming a solo exhibition into a dynamic collaborative project, Koo Jeong A has invited a judicious selection of international artists to respond and exhibit alongside her existing works. The exhibition explores topical issues concerning artistic practice and collaboration today. Reflecting on the process of storytelling - by nature spontaneous, responsive and heterogeneous – the participating artists respond to Koo Jeong A’s drawings with site-specific installations, as well as existing works refigured within the space.
Participating artists include Kyung Roh, Melissa Dubbin & Aaron S. Davidson, Yva Jung, Mona Yoo & Hanqing Ma, Martin Roth and Matthias Sohr.
