Helen Cho’s performance 21 Objects of Hesitation (2013-ongoing) explores the materiality of ceramics and the poignancy of their dissemination, in relation to her experience of diaspora and Korean roots. Highly aware of the complexity of representation of objects and the prosaic yet seductive qualities of everyday materiality, Cho brings forth otherwise invisible or neglected phenomena.
In this publication curators Renske Janssen and Kitty Scott reflect on her new body of work, the larger narratives and the way the artist translates them into poetic, seemingly mundane artefacts, films and performances. Thanks to Onomatopee (Eindhoven).
