Geumhyung Jeong is a choreographer and performance artist. In her work, she constantly negotiates the relationship between the human body and the things surrounding it. Through intense, risky interactions with her own body, she bestows a bizarre, disconcerting life upon plain, everyday objects. Her projects combine dance and puppetry and bring attention to technical aspects of theatre.
Jeong studied Acting at Hoseo University in Asan, Dance and Performance at the Korean National University of Arts in Seoul, and Animation Film at the Korean Academy of Film Arts in Seoul. Her works have been presented at the Delfina Foundation, London; Atelier Hermès, Seoul; New Museum Triennial, New York; Tate Modern, London; Asia Biennial, Guangzhou; Tanz Im August Festival, Berlin; ImPulsTanz Festival, Vienna; PACT Zollverein, Essen; and many others.
