Seolhui Lee and Jacob Fabricius in a conversation about KOO JEONG A’s artistry

at

KOO JEONG A’s artworks convey a sense of constant change where everything can be transformed. Still images become animated, scents emerge and disappear, and static sculptures encounter human movement. In connection with the exhibition “EHM [Event Horizon Malmö],” curators Seolhui Lee and Jacob Fabricius meet at Malmö Konsthall for a conversation about KOO JEONG A’s artistic practice. The conversation will be held in English.

Seolhui Lee and Jacob Fabricius, along with Mats Stjernstedt, are the three curators behind the exhibition “EHM [Event Horizon Malmö].” The centerpiece of the exhibition is “OooOoO Malmö,” a skateable sculpture constructed in wood. The artwork is specifically designed for Malmö Konsthall’s characteristic exhibition space and wedges its star-shaped formation between the building’s supporting pillars.
