Geumhyung Jeong: Small Tour

WHS Teatteri Union (ei paikkalippua) Siltavuorenranta 18, Helsinki

Eloton esine suutelee taiteilijaa uudessa kulttuuritilassa. Muovi ja iho koskettavat toisiaan. Elollisuuden harha syntyy ja purkautuu samassa hetkessä.

L’Art Est Mort -kyltin alle avautuvan tilan ensimmäinen teos on Small Tour. Kierroksen opastaa tai esittää korealainen taiteilija Geumhyung Jeong.

Kierros johdattaa kävijät eri puolille tilaa asettuvien inhimillisten mekanismien luo. Reitti vie animaatiosta tuotearvioon ja esityksestä luentoon. Geumhyung Jeongin teoksissa ihmisen ja koneen rakkaus on osa teknistä prosessia.

Jeongin teokset tarttuvat esineisiin samalla herkeämättömällä keskittymisellä kuin käyttöohjeet, kuntoutusohjelmat, ensiapuharjoitukset tai kauneussalongit.

Jeong on jo monen vuoden ajan kiertänyt niin gallerioissa, biennaaleissa ja museoissa kuin festivaaleilla ja teattereissakin. Nyt yleisö pääsee mukaan pienelle kiertokäynnille kohtauksesta tai kohtaamisesta toiseen.

Geumhyung Jeong: Small Tour

A lifeless object kisses the artist in a new cultural space. Plastic and skin touch each other. An illusion of life is born and broken at the same time.

Small Tour is the first artwork presented in the space that is now opening under the sign L’Art Est Mort. The tour is guided or performed by Geumhyung Jeong.

The tour leads the visitors to humane mechanisms in different corners of the space. The route takes them from an animation to a product review and from a performance to a lecture. In Geumhyung Jeong’s work, love between human and machine is part of the technical process.

Jeong’s art grasps objects with the same unrelenting concentration as user’s manuals, rehabilitation trainings, first aid practices or beauty parlors do.

Jeong has for many years toured in galleries, biennales and museums, as well as festivals and theatres. Now the audience gets to come along on a small tour from one scene or encounter to the next.

Duration:2h, language: English

Geumhyung Jeong

Geumhyung Jeong is a choreographer and performance artist. In her work, she constantly negotiates the relationship between the human body and the things surrounding it. Through intense, risky interactions with her own body, she bestows a bizarre, disconcerting life upon plain, everyday objects. Jeong explores the potential of the body – its sensuality, power to change its surroundings, and ability to undergo transformations through the power of desire. Her projects combine dance and puppetry, film and installation. For the Tate Live series at Tate Modern, she exhibited objects from her piece “Spa & Beauty” in the day, and transformed the gallery into a theatre stage for her performance of “7ways” at night.

Geumhyung Jeong studied theatre and acting  (BA) at Hoseo University in Asan/Korea, dance and performance (MA) at the Korean National University of Arts, and Animation Film at the Korean Academy of Film Arts in Seoul/Korea. She has been invited to exhibit her works worldwide, including at the 3rd New Museum Triennial in New York(2015), the 9th Asia-Pacific-Triennial in Brisbane(2018-2019), ImPulsTanz in Vienna(2014), and Kunsten Festival des art in Brussels(2019).  She has held solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Basel (2019), and Fondazione Modena Arti Visive (2020). In 2014 she received the Zücher Kantonalbank Acknowledgement Prize of Zürcher Theater Spektakel and in 2015 she was awarded the Hermès Foundation Missulsang award.

Hand and Machine

WHS Teatteri Union (ei paikkalippua) Siltavuorenranta 18, Helsinki

Hand made 16mm films from Australia

Cinema was the first inescapably mechanical art.  But in this post-mechanical age, the traditional apparatus of cinema has all too rapidly been deemed obsolete and primitive.    Yet the handing over of industrial machinery to anti-industrial users represents one of the prime creative opportunities for re-appraising and re-interpreting the nature of ourselves as transformed by the age of machines.

Post mechanical age, the humanness of the machine can be made evident.  Post mechanical age, machine craft is the new hand craft. This program presents seven recent film works from Australian diy cine experimentalists Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie exploring the primitive  apparatus of cinema and the relation between hand and machine.

Collaboration with Filmverkstaden

 Valpi

Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, 9 mins, 2020, 16mm

Valparaiso is a city defined not only by arts and culture, but it is also a marvel of improvised urban design and unique architecture. Also called “the jewel of the pacific” or “Valparadise”, Valparaiso is composed of more than 200 different hills where some of the most audacious artists inspire to create their art.  Valpi – is horizontally segmented, creating an immersive yet abstracted chronicle of both the multifaceted layers of human life in this place and the politico-cultural fractures hidden beneath the surface.

Crossing

Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, 11 mins, 2016, 11 min

Across the sea. Across the street.  Cross processed and grain enlarged images of fraught neighbours Korea and Japan in a pointillist sea of grain.

In and Out a Window

Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, 13 mins, 2021, 16mm

 ’The literal frame of a window overlooking a small garden becomes the scene through which Richard Tuohy’s film exploits the myriad plastic potentialities of the cinematic frame. Immersive and stroboscopic, In and Out a Window offers its own variations on cinema’s mechanical segmentations of space and time, opening up a portal to undiscovered dimensions and new phenomenologies.’  (from NYFF film festival catalogue)

China not China

Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, 14 minutes, 2018, 16mm

Hong Kong marked 20 years since its hand over; just under half way through the planned 50 year ’one country, two systems’ transition.  Taiwan, once imperial China, once Formosa, now ROC on the edge of the PRC.  Multiple exposures of street scenes distort space and place creating a fluid sense of impermanence and transition, of two states somewhere between China and not China.

Self Portrait with Bag

Dianna Barrie and Richard Tuohy, 6 mins,  2020, 16mm

A camera-less portrait of the artist. Super 8 cartridges placed inside a black cotton bag, the film advanced via a hand crank. The tiny gaps in the fabric weave make for dozens (hundreds? thousands?) of tiny pinholes.

Last Train

Dianna Barrie and Richard Tuohy, 12 mins, 2016, 16mm,
Found in the (now possibly lost) film archive at Lab Laba Laba, footage from a trailer for the 1981 Indonesian propaganda film ’Kereta Api Terakhir’ (The Last Train) melts into a soup of chemigrammed (produced by chemistry, not by light) perforations.  A film about the silence that follows the unspeakable; about blurred visions, untold histories and inaccessible archives.

Object festival: Pimiö

WHS Teatteri Union (ei paikkalippua) Siltavuorenranta 18, Helsinki

Pimiö on fyysinen ja visuaalinen tutkimus analogisesta valokuvauksesta, joka toteutetaan esityshetkessä näyttämöllä nykysirkukseen ja tanssiin yhdistettynä.

Teos muuntaa näyttämön analogiseksi kameraksi ja valokuvauslaboratorioksi, joiden sisällä kokeelliset ja perinteiset valokuvaustekniikat, fyysinen liike ja esinemanipulaatio yhdistyvät.

Huhtikuussa 2023 WHS Teatteri Unionissa ensi-iltaan tulevassa teoksessa yhteistyötä tekevät esiintyvä- ja kuvataiteilija Luis Sartori do Vale, Lontoossa asuva valokuvaaja André Baumecker, sirkus- ja tanssitaiteilija Mira Ravald ja valosuunnittelija Jere Mönkkönen.

2.11. klo 19:00 demo Pimiö esityksestä. Kesto noin 30min
