By Jaha Koo

A bunch of talkative rice cookers take you on a journey through the last 20 years of Korean history.

One day when his electric rice cooker informed him that his meal was ready, artist Jaha Koo experienced a deep sense of isolation. “Golibmuwon” (고립무원) is an untranslatable Korean word expressing the feeling of helpless isolation. A major economic crisis in South Korea had a devastating impact on the young generation to which Jaha belongs. This show combines personal experience with political events and reflections on happiness, economic crises and death.

This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
