An astonishing duet that transforms perspectives on how we interact with objects

While relentlessly building a collection of various items from everyday modern life, including mannequins, vacuum cleaners, sex toys, body brushes, and training machines, Geumhyung Jeong has continued to explore the relationship between these objects and her own body. Based in South Korea, she works internationally as a choreographer and performance artist, counting a solo performance and installation at the Tate Modern, UK, in 2017 among her recent achievements. Her desires and senses at times escalating as she interacts with her collection, she coolly inquires into the connection between humans and these objects of modernity. Her co-performer for Rehab Training is a life-sized male doll designed for use in healthcare education to show how people should care for patients. Jeong confronts and controls “him” while also attempting to "rehabilitate" the immobile dummy or the human shaped object through various tasks. As these gestures and actions build up, the relationship between puppet and puppeteer ultimately take on peculiar aspects that transcend intimacy. Who is controlling whom? The inorganic object starts to become its own unique kind of life form and the line between subject and object is no longer clear. How should we describe or define this relationship between “her” and “him”?
