At once tender and unsettling, the performances of Geumhyung Jeong (*1980) are studies in the erotics of technical animism. For her first solo exhibition in Switzerland, the South Korean artist and choreographer creates a new performance accompanied by a related film and sculptures that use DIY toy technologies, amateur robotics, and programmed movements to undermine the boundaries between desire and control, human and machine, animate and inanimate.
