Since the 1990s Koo has been working on the reinvention of spaces with site specific works. Her works frequently include architectural elements, drawings, fictions, poetries, publications, installations, sculptures, films, audio works and architecture projects. Koo’s most recent project is a skatepark pavilion in collaboration with L’Escault Architectures and is located on Vassivière Island, France. It is the first of a series.
Koo Jeong A has collaborated with Belgian firm l’escaut architectures to design a concrete sculpture which features a composition of different bowls connected by one tunnel and a cradle. located on Vassivière island in France, ‘otro’ stands as a fully functioning skate park, but this one’s a little bit different – it’s glow-in-the-dark eliminating the complications of an evening skate session. Drawn to the surrounding mysterious wooded french landscape, the Korean artist wanted to create a dreamscape amidst the natural surroundings. The artwork is something that is meant to live and be used, providing a sensorial experience to skaters and spectators alike.
