Biography

The works of Jaiyoung Cho address the invisible principles and their visible representations. The principles here however are the rather transfigured, the broken away from the present, the subtly flickering. The adverb “subtly” is added to convey that what the façade expresses is the portentous transfigurations of the quivering principles. The objects that Cho addresses are positioned in the narrow spaces in between the ‘normal’ and extinction. They belong to the unstable world where mutual exchange is possible before reality loses its resolution and is reverted to geometric shapes, or before materials return to the original state as alchemic souls.
