Statement

Koo Jeong-Aʼs work is an “archeology” of diverse materials, images and landscapes,
excluded and forgotten in the present-day cultural domain, that we often consider non-
artistic. Her work, always carried out in situ, is ephemeral. For each intervention, she seeks
to assemble all sorts of objects, videos and drawings that she (re)exposes, sometimes
hidden from the spectatorsʼ view. She accentuates and stages the infinitely small, even the
invisible. She reveals the beauty and the poetry of the most common objects and moments.
